Darrell L. Padgett, Appellant Pro Se.
John Castle Parr, OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY, Charleston, WV, for Appellee.
Before HALL and MICHAEL, Circuit Judges, and PHILLIPS, Senior Circuit Judge.
Appellant appeals the district court's order denying his motion for reconsideration of the court's earlier order denying relief under 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (1994), amended by Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, Pub. L. No. 104-132, 110 Stat. 1214. We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinion and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of probable cause and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. United States v. Padgett, Nos. CR-91-166; CA-94-377-1 (S.D.W. Va. July 30, 1996). We deny Appellant's motions for abeyance and remand. 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.
