William Howard O'Neil, Jr., Appellant Pro Se. William McBlief, North Carolina Department of Justice, Raleigh, NC, for Appellees.

Before RUSSELL and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges, and CHAPMAN, Senior Circuit Judge.

PER CURIAM:

1

Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying relief on his 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1983 (1988) complaint. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis and affirm on the reasoning of the district court. O'Neil v. Hughes, No. CA-94-49 (W.D.N.C. Sept. 8, 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.

AFFIRMED.
