United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

Alexander HARRIS, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. Sgt. JACKSON, River North Correctional Center; Officer Lowe, River North Correctional Center; S. Williams, Officer, River North Correctional Center; Meadows, Officer, River North Correctional Center; Morgan, K-9 Officer, River North Correctional Center, Defendants-Appellees.

No. 20-7447

Decided: April 27, 2021

Before GREGORY, Chief Judge, AGEE, Circuit Judge, and TRAXLER, Senior Circuit Judge. Alexander Harris, Appellant Pro Se.

Alexander Harris, a Virginia inmate, appeals the district court's orders accepting the magistrate judge's recommendations to (1) dismiss with prejudice Harris’ 42 U.S.C. § 1983 complaint for failure to exhaust his administrative remedies;* and (2) deny Harris’ postjudgment motion. We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. Harris v. Jackson, No. 7:17-cv-00147-JPJ-PMS (W.D. Va. Apr. 30, 2020 & Aug. 24, 2020). 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 magistrate judge made the findings of fact relevant to this ruling after conducting an extensive hearing, which the district court construed as a bench trial.
