NOTICE:  [**1]  RULES OF THE FOURTH CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS MAY LIMIT CITATION TO

(CA-02-1093-DKC). Deborah K. Chasanow, District Judge.

DISPOSITION: Affirmed.

COUNSEL: Dawn V. Martin, LAW OFFICES OF DAWN V. MARTIN, Washington, D. C., for Appellant.

Thomas M. DiBiagio, United States Attorney, Kristine L. Sendek-Smith, Assistant United States Attorney,
Baltimore, Maryland, for Appellee.

OPINION:

[*665]  PER CURIAM:

Rickey Medlock appeals from the district court's orders granting summary judgment in favor of Defendant in his
employment discrimination action and denying his motion for reconsideration. On appeal, he contends that the
district court erred by ruling on the motion for summary judgment prior to discovery, failing to consider his
claims of disparate impact, and granting summary judgment on his retaliation claim. We have reviewed the
parties' briefs, the joint appendix, and the district court's opinions and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we
affirm for [**2]  the reasons stated by the district court. See Medlock v. Rumsfeld, No. CA-02-1093-DKC (D. Md.
Dec. 31, 2002; Apr. 4, 2003). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are
adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
