Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 917 F.2d 1301 (4th Cir. 1990) Submitted Oct. 29, 1990. Decided Nov. 13, 1990

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Alexandria. James C. Cacheris, District Judge. (CA-89-688-AM)

George Gilchrist, appellant pro se.

Robert H. Anderson, III, Office of the Attorney General of Virginia, Richmond, Va., for appellees.

E.D. Va.


Before WIDENER, PHILLIPS and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.


George Gilchrist seeks to appeal the district court's February 20, 1990, order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 and the August 1, 1990, order denying a motion for reconsideration. 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. Gilchrist v. Murray, CA-89-688-AM (E.D. Va. Feb. 20, 1990; Aug. 1, 1990). 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.
