Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 59 F.3d 168 (4th Cir. 1995) Submitted May 18, 1995. Decided June 26, 1995

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.

PER CURIAM:


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.

DISMISSED

The parties consented to the jurisdiction of the magistrate judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(c) (1988)
