Decided: January 09, 2019
Before WILKINSON, FLOYD, and QUATTLEBAUM, Circuit Judges.
Charles A. Everage, HUNTER EVERAGE, Charlotte, North Carolina, for Appellant. Martha Raymond Thompson, STOTT, HOLLOWELL, PALMER & WINDHAM, LLP, Gastonia, North Carolina, for Appellee.
Genger Poole, as administrator of the Estate of William Dean Poole (“the Estate”), appeals from the magistrate judge’s grant of summary judgment to Sergeant W.P. Downey on the Estate’s 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2012) claims.* We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the magistrate judge. Poole v. Gaston, No. 3:15-cv-00309-DCK, 2017 WL 4479219 (W.D.N.C. Oct. 6, 2017). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
FOOTNOTE. The parties consented to the jurisdiction of a magistrate judge, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(c) (2012).
Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
