Amos Lee Vaughan, Petitioner-appellant, v. Ernest R. Sutton, Respondent-appellee, 927 F.2d 598 (4th Cir. 1991)Annotate this Case
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Raleigh. Franklin T. Dupree, Jr., Senior District Judge. (CA-90-148-HC)
Amos Lee Vaughan, appellant pro se.
Clarence Joe DelForge, III, Office of the Attorney General of North Carolina, Raleigh, N.C., for appellee.
Before DONALD RUSSELL, SPROUSE and NIEMEYER, Circuit Judges.
Amos Lee Vaughan appeals from 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 accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of probable cause and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Vaughan v. Sutton, CA-90-148-HC (E.D.N.C. Nov. 27, 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.
