Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 982 F.2d 525 (8th Cir. 1993) Submitted: December 16, 1992. Filed: January 7, 1993

Before JOHN R. GIBSON, Circuit Judge, BRIGHT, Senior Circuit Judge, and FAGG, Circuit Judge.


Kenneth Clay appeals the district court's denial of his petition for writ of habeas corpus. The district court adopted the magistrate judge's report holding that Clay's claims were procedurally barred and without merit. Clay's arguments that his claims are not procedurally barred are foreclosed by contrary holdings in Coleman v. Thompson, 111 S. Ct. 2546, 2566-67 (1991), and Daniels v. Jones, 944 F.2d 429, 430-31 (8th Cir. 1991). We thus affirm the district court. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
