Before HALL, MURNAGHAN, and HAMILTON, Circuit Judges.


Appellant appeals from the district court's orders dismissing his complaint alleging violations of the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, 18 U.S.C.A. § 1961-1968 (West 1985 & Supp.1995), and civil rights statutes 42 U.S.C. §§ 1983, 1985, 1986, 1988 (1988), and imposing FED. R. CIV. P . 11 sanctions. We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinions and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Davis v. Hudgins, No. CA-94-163-4 (E.D. Va. Aug. 7 & Dec. 27, 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.
