Decided: September 12, 2019
Before WILKINSON, FLOYD, and THACKER, Circuit Judges.
Antwon Whitten, Appellant Pro Se. James Noe Lucas Humphreys, HUNTER, SMITH & DAVIS, LLP, Kingsport, Tennessee; Rebecca Joyce Ketchie, Andrew Todd Wampler, WILSON WORLEY, PC, Kingsport, Tennessee; Susan A. Waddell, GUYNN WADDELL CARROLL & LOCKABY, P.C., Salem, Virginia, for Appellees.
Antwon Whitten appeals the district court's order granting summary judgment to Defendants on his claims under 42 U.S.C. §§ 1983, 1985(3) (2012), declining to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over his state law claims, and dismissing those claims without prejudice. We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm. Whitten v. Atyia, No. 7:17-cv-00465-JPJ-PMS, 2019 WL 1430005 (W.D. Va. Mar. 29, 2019). 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.
