Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 878 F.2d 378 (4th Cir. 1989)

Submitted May 22, 1989. Decided June 27, 1989

Joseph George Brown, Jr., appellant pro se.

Eric L. Olsen, Laura Jayne Hollan, Willcox & Savage, PC, for appellees.

Before DON RUSSELL, K.K. HALL, and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges.


Joseph George Brown, Jr., seeks to appeal the district court's order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 and monetary damages pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. 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 of the Sec. 2254 claim and affirm the denial of monetary relief on the Sec. 1983 claim on the reasoning of the district court. Brown v. Olsen, C/A No. 88-184-N (E.D. Va. Feb. 17, 1989). 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.
