Jack Trinsey appeals from the district court's order denying him injunctive relief* and dismissing his class action. With regard to the dismissal of Trinsey's complaint, 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. Trinsey v. Presidential Debate Comm'n, No. CA-92-659-R (E.D. Va. Oct. 16, 1992). Because the injunctive relief Trinsey sought, attending the debate, is not available any longer, Trinsey's appeal from the district court's denial of injunction is dismissed as moot. See Valley Forge Christian College v. Americans United for Separation of Church & State, Inc., 454 U.S. 464, 472 (1982) (requirement for actual controversy is injury capable of being redressed by favorable decision against defendant). 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 IN PART AND DISMISSED IN PART
