Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Raleigh. Malcolm J. Howard, District Judge. (CA-92-26-H)

Thomas Woodrow Rice, Appellant Pro Se.

E.D.N.C.

AFFIRMED.

Before HALL, WILKINS, and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.

OPINION

PER CURIAM:

1

Thomas Woodrow Rice appeals from the district court's order denying relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988). Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court.* Rice v. Bruse, No. CA-92-26-H (E.D.N.C. Feb. 7, 1992). 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

*

This opinion does not affect Rice's ability to file a 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988) motion challenging his attorney's effectiveness, provided he has exhausted his state court remedies
