PER CURIAM:

OPINION

1

Joseph M. Ward appeals from the district court's order dismissing his complaint alleging federal civil rights violations and federal claims for lack of jurisdiction and failure to state a claim. The district court also dismissed Ward's state claim, as supplemental jurisdiction was unavailable once the court determined that no federal claims existed. United Mine Workers of America v. Gibbs, 383 U.S. 715, 725 (1966). 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. Ward v. Lyall, No. CA-90-112-BO (E.D.N.C. Nov. 7, 1991). 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
