US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 977 F.2d 573 (4th Cir. 1992) Submitted: August 11, 1992Decided: October 6, 1992

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Richmond. Richard L. Williams, Senior District Judge. (CA-91-703)

Robert William Newell, Appellant Pro Se.

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

E.D. Va.


Before PHILLIPS, SPROUSE, and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.



Robert William Newell 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. Newell v. Garraghty, No. CA-91-703 (E.D. Va. Mar. 10, 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.
