Submitted: July 23, 1996. Decided: July 31, 1996

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore. Andre M. Davis, District Judge. (CA-95-2907-AMD)

Gary N. McNamara, Appellant Pro Se. John Joseph Curran, Jr., Attorney General, Baltimore, MD; Susan Renee Steinberg, MARYLAND DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH & MENTAL HYGIENE, Baltimore, MD, for Appellees.

D. Md.


Before WIDENER, NIEMEYER, and MICHAEL, Circuit Judges.


Appellant appeals from the district court's order dismissing without prejudice his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988) action. All but four of Appellants' claims were dismissed without prejudice. Because such dismissals are generally not appealable, we dismiss the appeal regarding these claims. See Domino Sugar Corp. v. Sugar Workers Local Union 392, 10 F.3d 1064, 1066-67 (4th Cir. 1993).

Three of Appellant's remaining claims were dismissed as frivolous pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(d) (1988), and Appellant's last claim was dismissed after summary judgment was granted to the only remaining Defendant. We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinions and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm the dismissal of the remaining claims on the reasoning of the district court. McNamara v. Wasserman, No. CA-95-2907-AMD (D. Md. Oct. 24, 1995, & Feb. 1, 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.
