Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 83 F.3d 415 (4th Cir. 1996) Submitted April 15, 1996. Decided April 25, 1996

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, at Baltimore. Catherine C. Blake, District Judge. (CA-95-2606-CCB)

James Harris, Appellant Pro Se.

D. Md.


Before ERVIN and MOTZ, Circuit Judges and CHAPMAN, Senior Circuit Judge.


Appellant seeks to appeal the district court's order dismissing without prejudice his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988) petition for failure to exhaust state court remedies. We have reviewed the record and the district court'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 district court. Harris v. Tegetoff, No. CA-95-2606-CCB (D. Md. Sept. 18, 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.
