Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 963 F.2d 367 (4th Cir. 1992)

Submitted: April 10, 1992Decided: May 26, 1992

Kenneth S. Cobey, Appellant Pro Se.

Richard Bruce Rosenblatt, Assistant Attorney General, Baltimore, Maryland, for Appellees.

Before NIEMEYER and WILKINS, Circuit Judges, and CHAPMAN, Senior Circuit Judge.


Kenneth S. Cobey appeals from 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 accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court.*  Cobey v. Rollins, No. CA-90-2432-R (D. Md. Dec. 2, 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.



We find that Cobey's claim of a Fourth Amendment violation is barred by his procedural default in the state courts. See Wainwright v. Sykes, 433 U.S. 72 (1977)
