We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. Hoffman v. Tanner, No. 9:18-cv-01146-RMG-BM (D.S.C. Dec. 26, 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 3
