Before WILKINSON, Chief Judge, MURNAGHAN, Circuit Judge, and CHAPMAN, Senior Circuit Judge.
Appellant seeks to appeal 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, we deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Medina v. Murray, No. CA-94-193-R (W.D. Va. Apr. 20, 1995). We deny Appellant's motion for appointment of counsel and 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.
