Appellant appeals from the district court's orders denying relief on his 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1983 (1988) complaints. Our review of the records and the district court's opinions discloses that these appeals are without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Nwanze v. Woody, Nos. CA-93-683, CA-94-278; Nwanze v. Ronca, No. CA-93-437; Nwanze v. Stanley, No. CA-93-435; Nwanze v. Everhart, No. CA-94-131 and Nwanze v. Kiel, No. CA-93-683 (E.D. Va. Sept. 2, 7, 12, 13, 1994).* 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.




To the extent that these actions are construed as brought pursuant to Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Fed. Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971), the Supreme Court's recent decision in Heck v. Humphrey, 62 U.S.L.W. 4594 (U.S.1994), mandates the dismissal of the complaints. See Stephenson v. Reno, 28 F.3d 26, 27-28 (5th Cir.1994)
