Robert Alvin Carman, Petitioner-appellant, v. Lonnie M. Saunders, Respondent-appellee, 52 F.3d 320 (4th Cir. 1995)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 52 F.3d 320 (4th Cir. 1995) Submitted: February 21, 1995. Decided: April 19, 1995

Robert Alvin Carman, Appellant Pro Se. Thomas Drummond Bagwell, Assistant Attorney General, Richmond, VA, for Appellee.

Before WIDENER, MURNAGHAN, and MICHAEL, Circuit Judges.


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. Carman v. Saunders, No. CA-93-804 (W.D. Va. Oct. 11, 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.
