US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 23 F.3d 401 (4th Cir. 1994) Submitted April 22, 1993. Decided May 5, 1994

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore. John R. Hargrove, District Judge. (CA-92-1393)

Lucian C. James, Jr., appellant pro se.

John Joseph Curran, Jr., Attorney General, Kreg Paul Greer, Assistant Attorney General, Baltimore, Maryland, for appellees.

D. Md.

Before WIDENER and PHILLIPS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


Lucian C. James, Jr., seeks to appeal the district court's order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988). Our review of the record and the district court's opinion 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. James v. Henneberry, No. CA-92-1393 (D. Md. Oct. 16, 1992). 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.
