Melvin Underwood, Petitioner-appellant, v. Wayne B. Winebrenner, Warden, Respondent-appellee, 869 F.2d 595 (4th Cir. 1989)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 869 F.2d 595 (4th Cir. 1989) Submitted: Nov. 30, 1988. Decided: Feb. 2, 1989

Melvin Underwood, appellant pro se.

John Joseph Curran, Jr., Attorney General, Ann Elizabeth Singleton (Office of the Attorney General), for appellee.

Before CHAPMAN, WILKINSON and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.


Melvin Underwood 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 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. Underwood v. Winebrenner, C/A No. 88-237-H (D. Md. Aug. 9, 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.
