United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

Edward L. WIGGINS, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. Correctional Officer JOHNSON, Defendant-Appellee.

No. 18-7098

Decided: March 18, 2019

Before WYNN and RICHARDSON, Circuit Judges, and TRAXLER, Senior Circuit Judge. Edward L. Wiggins, Appellant Pro Se.

Edward L. Wiggins appeals the district court's order dismissing his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 (2012) complaint for failure to state a claim. We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, although we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. Wiggins v. Johnson, No. 3:17-cv-00840-HEH-RCY, 2018 WL 3978966 (E.D. Va. Aug. 20, 2018). We further deny Wiggins’ motion for an evidentiary hearing. 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.
