Submitted June 23, 1994. Decided July 20, 1994
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Richmond. Robert R. Merhige, Jr., Senior District Judge. (CA-93-570-R)
William L. Owens, Appellant Pro Se.
Robert H. Anderson, III, Office of the Attorney General of Virginia, Richmond, VA, for Appellee.
Before MURNAGHAN and WILKINS, 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 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. Owens v. Murray, No. CA-93-570-R (E.D. Va. Feb. 23, 1994).* 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.
We deny Appellant's motion for "removal of this action from state jurisdiction."
