Submitted April 2, 1990. Decided April 16, 1990
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Alexandria. Albert V. Bryan, Jr., Chief District Judge. (C/A No. 89-720-AM)
Calvin Wash Pruitt, Appellant Pro Se. Linwood Theodore Wells, Jr., Office of the Attorney General of Virginia, Richmond, Va., for appellee.
Before ERVIN, Chief Judge, and PHILLIPS and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges.
Calvin Wash Pruitt seeks to appeal the district court's order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Our revi?? 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. Pruitt v. Deans, CA-89-720-AM (E.D. Va. Aug. 30, 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.
