Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 869 F.2d 593 (4th Cir. 1989) Submitted: Jan. 19, 1989. Decided: Feb. 16, 1989

Robert J. Castleberry, appellant pro se.

Barry Steven McNeill (Office of the Attorney General), for appellees.

Before DONALD RUSSELL, MURNAGHAN and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:


Robert J. Castleberry 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, deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis, and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Castleberry v. Dixon, C/A No. 88-272-D (M.D.N.C. Oct. 28, 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.

DISMISSED.
