Jean McDaniel appeals from the district court's order denying relief on her sexual harassment and employment termination claims under 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1983. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm the summary judgment on the reasoning of the district court. McDaniel v. Terry, C/A No. 87-594-R (E.D.Va. April 25, 1988). We affirm the dismissal of the claims regarding defendant Moore because the allegations of sexual harassment occurred more than two years prior to the filing of the complaint and are therefore barred by Virginia's two-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims. Va. Code Ann. Sec. 8.01-243(A). Finally, we affirm the dismissal of the claim that Moore made disparaging remarks about McDaniel to her future supervisor because these remarks had no discernible affect on her employment. Fisher v. Flynn, 598 F.2d 663, 665-66 (1st Cir.1979). 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.
