We consider pseudo-symmetric and Ricci generalized pseudo-symmetric N(${\kappa}$) contact metric manifolds. We also consider N(${\kappa}$)-contact metric manifolds satisfying the condition $S{\cdot}R$ = 0 where R and S denote the curvature tensor and the Ricci tensor respectively. Finally we give some examples.
