United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. John E. Tutchton, Defendant-appellant, 59 F.3d 168 (4th Cir. 1995)

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 23, 1995

John E. Tutchton, Appellant Pro Se. Richard Douglas Bennett, Office of the United States Attorney, Baltimore, MD, for Appellee.

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


Appellant seeks to appeal the district court's order denying relief on his 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (1988) complaint. We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinion, and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. United States v. Tutchton, Nos. CR-93-129-S; CA-94-3520 (D. Md. Jan. 3, 1995). Appellant's motion to expedite is now moot and is dismissed for that reason. 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.
