Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 86 F.3d 1154 (4th Cir. 1996) Submitted: May 16, 1996. Decided: May 21, 1996

On Petition for Writ of Mandamus. (CA-75-23-W)

Alfred J. Vincent, Petitioner Pro Se.


Before RUSSELL, LUTTIG, and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.


Alfred J. Vincent's petition for mandamus is meritless and is therefore denied. His motions for appointment of counsel, for recusal of members of this court, for dismissal of No. 81-1513, for certification of questions to the Supreme Court, and to vacate a district court judgment are also denied for lack of merit. Finally, because no member of the court has requested a poll, Vincent's motion for hearing en banc is denied. We also deny Vincent's motions for in forma pauperis status and for oral argument and "Request for Hearing" because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
