US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 72 F.3d 128 (4th Cir. 1995) Submitted Nov. 16, 1995. Decided Dec. 12, 1995

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Raleigh. W. Earl Britt, District Judge. (CA-95-294-5-CV-BR)

Homer W. Walker, Appellant Pro Se. Barbara Dickerson Kocher, OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY, Raleigh, NC, for Appellees.



Before MICHAEL and MOTZ, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


Homer W. Walker filed this action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988) against the United States Department of Probation and certain of its employees claiming damages for alleged inaccuracies in his presentence report. Because Walker failed to state a claim either under Sec. 1983 or Bivens,*  we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Walker v. United States Dep't of Probation, No. CA95-294-5-CV-BR (E.D.N.C. Aug. 2, 1995). 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.
