Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, at Parkersburg. Charles H. Haden, II, Chief District Judge. (CA-91-993-6)

Dean W. Smith, Appellant Pro Se.

Stephen Mitchell Walker, United States Department of Health & Human Services, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Stephen Michael Horn, Assistant United States Attorney, Charleston, West Virginia, for Appellee.



Before WIDENER and WILKINS, Circuit Judges, and CHAPMAN, Senior Circuit Judge.




Dean W. Smith appeals from the district court's order granting summary judgment to the Defendant in his action for Social Security Disability benefits. 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. Smith v. Sullivan, No. CA-91-993-6 (S.D.W. Va. July 22, 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.
