Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 937 F.2d 602 (4th Cir. 1991) Submitted March 20, 1991. Decided July 3, 1991

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Norfolk. Rebecca B. Smith, District Judge. (CA-90-1656-N)

Norman G. Berg, appellant pro se.

E.D. Va.


Before DONALD RUSSELL and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges, and CHAPMAN, Senior Circuit Judge.



Norman G. Berg 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, deny appellant's motion for appointment of counsel, and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Berg v. Murray, CA-90-1656-N (E.D. Va. Nov. 20, 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.
