Francis J. Green, Jr., Appellant Pro Se. Ann Norman Bosse, OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF MARYLAND, Baltimore, MD, for Appellees.
Before WIDENER, NIEMEYER, and MICHAEL, Circuit Judges.
Appellant seeks to appeal the district court's order denying relief on his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988), as amended by Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act 101996, Pub. L. No. 104-32, 110 Stat. 1217, 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; to the extent that such a certificate of appealability is required, we deny such a certificate. We dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Green v. Beshears, No. CA-95-3172-S (D. Md. Feb. 14, 1996). 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.
