United States of America, Plaintiff Appellee, v. Dennis Howell Smith, Defendant Appellant, 16 F.3d 413 (4th Cir. 1994)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 16 F.3d 413 (4th Cir. 1994)

Submitted Dec. 16, 1993. Jan. 14, 1994

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Norfolk; J. Calvitt Clarke, Jr., Senior District Judge.

Dennis Howell Smith, appellant pro se.

Laura Marie Everhart, Norfolk, VA, for appellee.

E.D. Va.


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


Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying his 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (1988) motion. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. United States v. Smith, Nos. CR-89-136-N; CA-93-921-2 (E.D. Va. Sept. 17, 1993). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the mate-rials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
