James Eugene Venable, Petitioner-appellant, v. Ellis B. Wright, Warden, Respondent-appellee, 59 F.3d 168 (4th Cir. 1995)Annotate this Case
James Eugene Venable, appellant pro se. Robert B. Condon, Assistant Attorney General, Richmond, VA, 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. Venable v. Wright, No. CA-94-576-3 (E.D. Va. Jan. 10, 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 the jurisdiction of the magistrate judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(c) (1988)
