SECTON; S.A. ASKEW, Defendants - Appellees. Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Raleigh. Terrence W. Boyle, District Judge. (5:17-ct-03024-BO) Submitted: September 28, 2018 Before NIEMEYER, MOTZ, and FLOYD, Circuit Judges. Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion. George E. Carter, Appellant Pro Se. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. Decided: October 9, 2018 PER CURIAM: George E. Carter appeals the district court’s order dismissing under 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(b) (2012) his civil rights complaint, which the court construed as filed pursuant to Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Fed. Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971). We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. See Carter v. Smoot, No. 5:17-ct03024-BO (E.D.N.C. Mar. 22, 2018). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process. AFFIRMED 2
