Appeals from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Norfolk. Robert G. Doumar, District Judge. (CA-91-36-N)
John Daniel MacLeod, Appellant Pro Se.
NO. 91-6078 DISMISSED AND NO. 91-6110 AFFIRMED.
Before K.K. HALL and PHILLIPS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.
In No. 91-6078, John Daniel MacLeod 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 accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge 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. MacLeod v. Murray, CA-91-36-N (E.D. Va. May 16, 1991). In No. 91-6110, MacLeod appeals from the district court's denial of his post-judgment motion for recusal. We also affirm that order on the reasoning of the district court. MacLeod v. Murray, CA91-36-N (E.D. Va. Jul. 8, 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. 91-6078, DISMISSED.
No. 91-6110, AFFIRMED.
