Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 917 F.2d 1301 (4th Cir. 1990) Submitted Sept. 6, 1990. Decided Nov. 9, 1990

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Raleigh. Malcolm J. Howard, District Judge. (CA-88-422-HC)

Michael Eugene Hunt, appellant pro se.

Richard Norwood League, Office of the Attorney General of North Carolina, Raleigh, N.C., for appellees.



Before K.K. HALL, PHILLIPS and MURNAGHAN, Circuit Judges.


Michael Eugene Hunt 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. Hunt v. Barnett, CA-88-422-HC (E.D.N.C. Feb. 1, 1989). We deny Hunt's motion for appointment of counsel and 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.
