PER CURIAM: Earnest Edward Vaughn appeals the district court’s order accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge and denying relief on his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2012) complaint. We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. Vaughn v. Byrd, No. 8:17-cv-02232-TLW (D.S.C. June 5, 2018). We deny Vaughn’s motion for appointment of counsel. 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
