Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 50 F.3d 6 (4th Cir. 1995)

Submitted Feb. 16, 1995. Decided March 21, 1995

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, at Raleigh. James C. Fox, Chief District Judge. (CA-94-223-5-HC-F)

Jerry Lynn High, appellant pro pe.

Clarence Joe DelForge, III, Office of the Attorney General of North Carolina, Raleigh, ND, for appellee.



Before HAMILTON and MOTZ, Circuit Judges, and CHAPMAN, Senior Circuit Judge.


Appellant seeks to appeal the district court's order denying his "Motion for Default Judgment" in relation to his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988) petition in which the court had already granted summary judgment to the Respondent. Our review of the record and the district court's order 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. High v. Hunt, No. CA-94-223-5-HC-F (E.D.N.C. Nov. 25, 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.
