Before MURNAGHAN and LUTTIG, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.




Melvin Wayne Martin 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 discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Martin v. Funkhouser, No. CA-90-313-R (W.D. Va. Aug. 16, 1991, June 9, 25, 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.



Although we deny Martin's motion for production of transcripts at government expense, we have reviewed the audio tapes of the bench trial. We grant the "Motion for Court to Hear All Claims."
