W.D. Va.


Before WIDENER and K.K. HALL, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.1 


M. Ismail Sloan appeals from the district court's order dismissing without prejudice his writ of habeas corpus. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Sloan v. Roberts, CA-90-79-L (W.D. Va. Dec. 19, 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.



Senior Judge Butzner did not participate in the consideration of this case. The opinion is filed by a quorum of the panel pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 46(d)
