US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 96 F.3d 1438 (4th Cir. 1996) Submitted Aug. 22, 1996. Decided Sept. 10, 1996

William M. Bailey, Appellant Pro Se. Ann Norman Bossee, OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF MARYLAND, Baltimore, Maryland, for Appellee.

D. Md.


Before RUSSELL, HALL, and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.


Appellant appeals from 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 accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Bailey v. Corcoran, No. CA-94-3620-WMN (D. Md. Feb. 29, 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. The motion for appointment of counsel is denied.
