UNPUBLISHED UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT No. 08-1208 MALCOLM L. BAZZIE, Petitioner, v. EASTERN ASSOCIATED COAL CORPORATION; WORKERS' COMPENSATION PROGRAMS, Respondents. DIRECTOR, OFFICE OF On Petition for Review of an Order of the Benefits Review Board. (07-0357-BLA) Submitted: October 10, 2008 Decided: November 7, 2008 Before NIEMEYER, MICHAEL, and KING, Circuit Judges. Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion. Malcolm L. Bazzie, Petitioner Pro Se. Laura Metcoff Klaus, Mark Elliott Solomons, GREENBERG TRAURIG, Washington, D.C.; Michelle Seyman Gerdano, Patricia May Nece, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF LABOR, Washington, D.C., for Respondents. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Malcolm L. Bazzie seeks review of the Benefits Review Board's decision and order affirming the administrative law judge's denial of Bazzie's petition for modification of a decision that denied black lung benefits pursuant to 30 U.S.C. 901-945 (2000). Our review of the record discloses that the Board's decision is based upon substantial evidence and is without reversible error. Accordingly, we deny the petition for the reasons stated by the Board. See Bazzie v. Eastern Associated Coal Corp., No. 07-0357-BLA (B.R.B. Jan. 4, 2008). 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. PETITION DENIED - 2 -
