Denrick Eric Brown, Petitioner-appellant, v. David William, Mary Sue Terry, Respondents-appellees, 944 F.2d 900 (4th Cir. 1991)Annotate this Case
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Richmond. Robert R. Merhige, Jr., Senior District Judge. (CA-90-467-3)
Denrick Eric Brown, appellant pro se.
Mary Sue Terry, Attorney General, John H. McLees, Jr., Office of the Attorney General of Virginia, Richmond, Va., for appellees.
Before K.K. HALL and WILKINS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.
Denrick Eric Brown 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 and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Brown v. William, CA-90-467-3 (E.D. Va. Apr. 22, 1991). We also deny Brown's motion to amend as he may not raise an additional claim for the first time on appeal. 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.
