Paul M. Deloatch, appellant pro se.
Richard Norwood League, Office of the Attorney General of North Carolina, Raleigh, NC, for appellees.
Before RUSSELL, MURNAGHAN and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.
Appellant seeks to appeal the district court's order denying relief on his 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2254 (1988) petition. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Deloatch v. North Carolina Attorney General, No. CA-93-53-2 (M.D.N.C. Sept. 1, 1993). 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.
