PER CURIAM: Gail Evans appeals the district court's order accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge and granting summary judgment in favor of her former employer on her claims of discrimination, retaliation, and hostile work environment brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 2000e to 2000e-17 (2000), her claim under 42 U.S.C. 1983 (2000), and her state law claim of intentional infliction of emotional distress. This court reviews a district court's grant of summary judgment de novo. Higgins v. E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Co., Summary judgment may only be 863 F.2d 1162, 1167 (4th Cir. 1988). granted when "there is no genuine issue as to any material fact and . . . the moving party is entitled to a judgment as a matter of law." Fed. R. Civ. P. 56(c). With this standard in mind, we have reviewed the materials before us on appeal and find no reversible error. district Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the court. See Evans v. Williamsburg Tech. Coll., No. 4:03-cv-03939-TLW (D.S.C. Mar. 29, 2007). 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. AFFIRMED - 2 -
