US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 867 F.2d 608 (4th Cir. 1989)

Submitted: Dec. 7, 1988. Decided: Jan. 25, 1989. Rehearing and Rehearing In Banc Denied Feb. 16, 1989

Dexter Drake Coffin, III, appellant pro se.

Linwood T. Wells, Jr. (Office of the Attorney General of Virginia), for appellees.

Before MURNAGHAN and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


Dexter Drake Coffin, III, appeals from the United States Magistrate's*  order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Our review of the record and the Magistrate's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the Magistrate. Coffin v. Murray, C/A No. 87-685-R (E.D. Va. Mar. 14, 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.



Jurisdiction is appropriate under 28 U.S.C. § 636(c) (2)
