Delonte E. Taylor, Appellant Pro Se.
Before WIDENER, NIEMEYER, and MICHAEL, Circuit Judges.
Appellant appeals the district court's order denying relief on his habeas corpus petition filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988), as amended by Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penaly Act of 1996, Pub. L. No. 104-132, 110 Stat. 1217. 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. Taylor v. Smith, No. CA-95-1822-AW (D. Md. Jan. 29, 1996). 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.
