United States of America, Plaintiff Appellee, v. Joseph L. Laforney, 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 Jan. 10, 1994. Decided Jan. 31, 1994

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Wilmington. W. Earl Britt, District Judge.

Joseph L. Laforney, appellant Pro Se.

Douglas McCullough, Office of the United States Attorney, Raleigh, NC, for appellee.



Before WILKINS and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying his Fed. R. Crim. P. 33 motion for a new trial based on newly discovered evidence. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, finding no abuse of discretion, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. United States v. Laforney, No. NCR-90-15-7 (E.D.N.C. Aug. 18, 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.
