(8:17-cv-02581-PWG) Submitted: October 29, 2018 Decided: November 13, 2018 Before WILKINSON, RICHARDSON, and QUATTLEBAUM, Circuit Judges. Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion. Chad Austin, Appellant Pro Se. Vickie Elaine LeDuc, OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY, Baltimore, Maryland, for Appellee. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Chad Austin, a federal prisoner, appeals the district court’s order denying relief on his 28 U.S.C. § 2241 (2012) petition. We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, although we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. Austin v. Stewart, No. 8:17-cv-02581PWG (D. Md. May 10, 2018). We deny Austin’s motion for appointment of counsel. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process. AFFIRMED 2
