Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 72 F.3d 127 (4th Cir. 1995) Submitted Nov. 28, 1995. Decided Dec. 14, 1995

Antonio Lawson, Appellant Pro Se. Michael Allan Fry, Assistant Solicitor, Towson, Maryland; Robert Charles Verderaime, VERDERAIME & DUBOIS, Baltimore, Maryland, for Appellees.

Before HALL and MURNAGHAN, Circuit Judges, and PHILLIPS, Senior Circuit Judge.


Antonio Lawson appeals from the district courts orders (1) dismissing his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988) complaint as to the Baltimore Police Commissioner and (2) entering judgment upon the jury's verdict in favor of the remaining defendants. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge to dismiss the Police Commissioner discloses that the appeal of this order is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Lawson v. Doe, No. CA-93-267-JFM (D. Md., Mar. 11, 1995). Our review of the limited record before the court discloses no reversible error with respect to the jury's verdict in favor of the remaining defendants. Accordingly, we affirm. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
