Jerome Goodman appeals the district court's order granting the Commissioner's motion for summary judgment in his claim challenging the application of the Windfall Elimination Provision to his award of Social Security retirement benefits. We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinion accepting the magistrate judge's recommendation and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Goodman v. Chater, Commissioner, No. CA-95-698-MJG (D.Md. May 6, 1996). 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.
