Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 74 F.3d 1232 (4th Cir. 1996)

Submitted Dec. 19, 1995. Decided Jan. 18, 1996

Jason Bradley Matthews, Appellant Pro Se. Donald John Zelenka, Chief Deputy Attorney General, Columbia, South Carolina, for Appellees.

Before HALL, WILKINS, and HAMILTON, Circuit Judges.


Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying relief on his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988) petition. We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinion and find no reversible error. Accordingly, although we grant a certificate of probable cause to appeal, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Matthews v. Martin, No. CA-93-3102-3-17-AJ (D.S.C. Feb. 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.
