Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 875 F.2d 316 (4th Cir. 1989) Submitted March 31, 1989. Decided May 9, 1989

Donald Lee Presley, appellant pro se.

Robert Harkness Herring, Jr., Thomas Drummond Bagwell, Office of the Attorney General of Virginia, for appellees.

Before PHILLIPS, CHAPMAN, and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.


Donald Lee Presley appeals from the district court's order denying relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and seeks to appeal two orders of the district court refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Our review of the records and the district court's opinions in these cases discloses that these appeals are without merit. Accordingly, we deny certificates of probable cause to appeal and dismiss the appeals on the reasoning of the district court in No. 88-6812 and No. 88-7814. Presley v. Garraghty, C/A No. 88-86-R; C/A No. 87-129 (E.D. Va. Sept. 27, 1988; W.D. Va. Nov. 9, 1988). We affirm on the reasoning of the district court in No. 88-7347. Presley v. Murray, C/A No. 88-440-R (E.D. Va. Dec. 2, 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.

No. 88-6812 DISMISSED.

No. 88-7814 DISMISSED.

No. 88-7347 AFFIRMED.
