Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 30 F.3d 132 (4th Cir. 1994)

Submitted: June 28, 1994. Decided: July 29, 1994

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore. John R. Hargrove, Senior District Judge. (CA-93-3009-HAR)

James G. Wallace, Appellant Pro Se.

John Joseph Curran, Jr., Attorney General, Mary Ellen Barbera, Assistant Attorney General, Baltimore, Maryland, for Appellees.

D. Md.


Before MURNAGHAN, HAMILTON, and MICHAEL, Circuit Judges.


Appellant appeals from 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 affirm on the reasoning of the district court.*  Wallace v. Smith, No. CA-93-3009-HAR (D. Md. Mar. 16, 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 the appointment of counsel
