Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 16 F.3d 411 (4th Cir. 1994) Submitted Dec. 16, 1993. Decided Jan. 11, 1994

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, at Columbia. Solomon Blatt, Jr., Senior District Judge. (CA-92-3185-3-8AJ).

Malcolm Reese, appellant pro se.

Donald John Zelenka, Chief Deputy Attorney General, Columbia, SC, for appellees.



Before HALL and NIEMEYER, Circuit Judges, and SPROUSE, Senior Circuit Judge.


Appellant seeks to appeal the district court's order denying relief on his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988) petition. 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 deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Reese v. Taylor, No. CA-92-3185-3-8AJ (D.S.C. Aug. 5, 1993). 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.
