William Foster Stanton, Petitioner-appellant, v. Linwood v. Stephenson, Attorney General of North Carolina,respondents- Appellees, 854 F.2d 1317 (4th Cir. 1988)Annotate this Case
William Foster Stanton, appellant pro se.
Richard Norwood League, Office of the Attorney General of North Carolina, for appellees.
Before JAMES DICKSON PHILLIPS, MURNAGHAN, and ERVIN, Circuit Judges.
William Foster Stanton 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 and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Stanton v. Stephenson, C/A No. 87-279-HC (E.D.N.C. March 11, 1988). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal arguments are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and oral argument would not significantly aid the decisional process.
