United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

Joseph A. BROWN, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. Charles RATLEDGE, Warden, Defendant-Appellee.

No. 17-7387

Decided: January 23, 2018

Before GREGORY, Chief Judge, and SHEDD and HARRIS, Circuit Judges. Joseph A. Brown, Appellant Pro Se. Joseph W.H. Mott, OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY, Roanoke, Virginia, for Appellee.

Joseph A. Brown appeals the district court's order denying relief on his complaint filed pursuant to Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Fed. Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388, 91 S.Ct. 1999, 29 L.Ed.2d 619 (1971). We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. Brown v. Ratledge, No. 7:16-cv-00303-EKD-RSB, 2017 WL 4404248 (W.D. Va. Sept. 29, 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.
