William H. King, Appellant Pro Se. Linwood Theodore Wells, Jr., Assistant Attorney General, Richmond, Virginia, for Appellee.
Before RUSSELL, LUTTIG and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.
Appellant seeks to appeal 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 and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we deny Appellant's motion to proceed in forma pauperis, deny a certificate of appealability and dismiss on the reasoning of the district court. King v. Thompson, No. CA-95-1541-AM (E.D.Va. Nov. 6, 1995). 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.
