Decided: June 5, 1996

David Felton, Appellant Pro Se.

Before RUSSELL, LUTTIG, and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.


Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying relief on his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988) complaint. We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinion and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court but modify the dismissal to be without prejudice. 28 U.S.C. § 2106 (1988). Felton v. Freeman, No. CA-96-1 (E.D.N.C. Jan. 26, 1996). 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.
