Cleveland Hughes, Appellant Pro Se. John Joseph Curran, Jr., Attorney General, Mary Ellen Barbera, Assistant Attorney General, Baltimore, Maryland, for Appellees.
Before WILKINSON, Chief Judge, and MICHAEL and MOTZ, 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 accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Hughes v. Smith, No. CA-92-2738-N (D. Md. Aug. 23, 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.
