US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 86 F.3d 1153 (4th Cir. 1996) Submitted May 16, 1996. Decided June 3, 1996

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Newport News. J. Calvitt Clarke, Jr., Senior District Judge. (CR-89-21, CA-95-129-4)

E.D. Va.


Jerry Winslow Clark, Appellant Pro Se. Robert Joseph Seidel, Jr., Assistant United States Attorney, Norfolk, Virginia; Robert Bullington Wilson, V, COMMONWEALTH'S ATTORNEY'S OFFICE, Hampton, Virginia, for Appellee.

Before RUSSELL, LUTTIG, and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.


Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying his 28 U.S.C. § 2255 (1988) motion. We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinion and find no reversible error. We find that the district court properly denied Appellant's double jeopardy claim because Appellant failed to make a claim in the civil forfeiture proceeding. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of appealability and dismiss substantially on the reasoning of the district court. United States v. Clark, No. CR-89-21; CA-95-129-4 (E.D. Va. Dec. 19, 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.
