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 23, 1995

Edward B. Lunsford, Appellant Pro Se. Richard Norwood League, Office of the Attorney General of North Carolina, Raleigh, NC, for Appellee.

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


Appellant seeks to appeal the magistrate judge's order denying relief on his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988) petition.*  We have reviewed the record and the magistrate judge's opinion, and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the magistrate judge. Lunsford v. North Carolina Attorney General, No. CA-94-215-1 (M.D.N.C. Jan. 13, 1995). 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.



The parties consented to disposition by a magistrate judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(c) (1988)
