US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 977 F.2d 571 (4th Cir. 1992) Submitted: August 5, 1992Decided: September 25, 1992

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia, at Roanoke. James C. Turk, Chief District Judge. (CA-91-487-R)

Anthony Franklin Anderson, Melissa Windham Friedman, Roanoke, Virginia, for Appellant.

Linwood Theodore Wells, Jr., Assistant Attorney General, Richmond, Virginia, for Appellee.

W.D. Va.


Before SPROUSE, NIEMEYER, and HAMILTON, Circuit Judges.



Randall Wayne Clark seeks to appeal the district court's order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C.s 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. Clark v. Lawhon, No. CA-91-487-R (W.D. Va. Feb. 19, 1992). 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.
