Rodney Sylvester Smith, Petitioner-appellant, v. John N. Brown, Warden, Respondent-appellee, 861 F.2d 266 (4th Cir. 1988)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 861 F.2d 266 (4th Cir. 1988) Submitted Aug. 26, 1988. Decided Oct. 4, 1988

Rodney Sylvester Smith, appellant pro se.

John Joseph Curran, Jr., Attorney General, Richard Bruce Rosenblatt, Office of Attorney General, for appellee.

Before ERVIN and WILKINS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


Rodney Sylvester Smith appeals from 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 discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Smith v. Brown, C/A No. 88-123-S (D. Md. May 25, 1988). 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.
