Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 74 F.3d 1233 (4th Cir. 1996)

Jan. 16, 1996

Richard A. Schmidt, Appellant Pro Se. John Joseph Curran, Jr., Attorney General, Kathryn Grill Graeff, OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF MARYLAND, Baltimore, Maryland, for Appellees.

Before WILKINSON and MICHAEL, Circuit Judges, and PHILLIPS, Senior Circuit Judge.


Appellant appeals 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 accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Schmidt v. Smith, No. CA-94-536-N (D. Md. Feb. 15, 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.
