Before WIDENER, PHILLIPS and NIEMEYER, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:


George Edward Penland, Jr., seeks to appeal the district court's order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 in No. 91-6286. 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. Penland v. Allen, CA-90-2-A (W.D.N.C. Feb. 12, 1991).

Penland also appeals from the district court's order denying relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 in No. 91-6785. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is also without merit. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment on the reasoning of the district court. Penland v. Hanie, CA-90-7-A-C (W.D.N.C. Feb. 5, 1991).

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.

No. 91-6286, DISMISSED.

No. 91-6785, AFFIRMED.
