Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 955 F.2d 40 (4th Cir. 1992) Submitted Jan. 17, 1992. Decided Feb. 21, 1992

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Raleigh. Malcolm J. Howard, District Judge. (CA-90-588-HC-H)

Rodney Canty, appellant pro se.

Clarence Joe DelForge, III, Office of the Attorney General of North Carolina, Raleigh, N.C., for appellee.



Before K.K. HALL and LUTTIG, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.



Rodney Canty seeks to appeal the district court's order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988). 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. Canty v. North Carolina, No. CA-90-588-HC-H (E.D.N.C. July 26, 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.
