D.Md.

AFFIRMED.

Before NIEMEYER and MOTZ, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.

PER CURIAM:

1

Robert Ward, by his mother Sondra Williams, appeals from the district court's order granting summary judgment to the Defendant in this diversity action alleging that Robert sustained permanent injury as the result of ingesting lead-based paint during the time that he and his mother resided in an apartment owned by the Defendant. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion reveals that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Ward v. Shepherd, No. CA-91-3002-S (D. Md. May 20, 1993). 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.

AFFIRMED.
