Before WIDENER and HALL, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.

PER CURIAM:

OPINION

1

Charles Jones appeals from the district court's orders denying relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (1988). 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 affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Jones v. Ruzicka, No. CA-88-1908-HM (D. Md. Oct. 26, 1989 & Dec. 27, 1991). Jones's motions to appoint counsel, to consolidate this case with case Nos. 92-6415 and 92-6459, to obtain transcripts at government expense in this case and case No. 92-6415, to reopen case Nos. 91-6086 and 916087, and to place this appeal in abeyance are denied. 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
