Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.

PER CURIAM.

Verdessa McDougald appeals the district court's order granting Appellees summary judgment on McDougald's state law wrongful death and survival claims. We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. See McDougald v. Pow, No. 1:17-cv-02898-SAG (D. Md. Nov. 3, 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.

AFFIRMED.
