Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 852 F.2d 565 (4th Cir. 1988) Submitted: June 14, 1988. Decided: July 13, 1988

James Charles Davis, appellant pro se.

Barry Steven McNeill, Assistant Attorney General (Office of the Attorney General of North Carolina), for appellee.

Before SPROUSE, CHAPMAN and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.


James Charles Davis seeks to appeal the district court's order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion accepting the recommendation of the magistrate discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Davis v. State of North Carolina, C/A No. 86-805-C-R (M.D.N.C. Nov. 5, 1987). 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.
