Before MURNAGHAN, HAMILTON,* and LUTTIG, Circuit Judges.

Lawrence Woods appeals from the district court's order dismissing his Fed. R. Civ. P. 60(b)(6) motion. Woods sought to challenge the validity of a 1989 voluntary settlement agreement and enforcement order disposing of his employment discrimination claims against the Appellee, Sandoz Chemical Corporation. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit.1 Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Woods v. Sandoz Chem. Corp., No. CA-88-501-C-C-M (W.D.N.C. Mar. 17, 1992).2 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.



Judge Hamilton did not participate in consideration of this case. The opinion is filed by a quorum of the panel pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 46(d)


Woods's motion fails to state any valid ground for relief, and gives no explanation for the nearly two and one-half year delay in filing


We hereby deny Woods's Motion to Stay Case
