James Tinsley, A/k/a Virgel St. John, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Richard S. Lindler, Warden, Mccormick Correctionalinstitution, Defendant-appellee, 59 F.3d 167 (4th Cir. 1995)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 59 F.3d 167 (4th Cir. 1995) Submitted May 18, 1995. Decided June 27, 1995

James Tinsley, Appellant Pro Se. Donald John Zelenka, Chief Deputy Attorney General, Columbia, SC, for Appellee.



Before NIEMEYER and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying his motion to strike, rehear, or appeal from the court's earlier order dismissing without prejudice his request for habeas relief based on Appellant's failure to exhaust his state remedies. Because we recently affirmed the district court's prior order in Tinsley v. Lindler, No. 95-6121 (4th Cir. Apr. 11, 1995) (unpublished), we affirm the court's decision to deny Appellant's motion. 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.
