Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Richmond. David G. Lowe, Magistrate Judge. (CA-95-857).
Richard A. Massenburg, Appellant Pro Se. Robert H. Anderson, III, OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF VIRGINIA, Richmond, Virginia, for Appellee.
Before RUSSELL, LUTTIG and WILLIAMS, Circuit Judges.
Appellant seeks to appeal the magistrate judge's order denying relief on his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988) petition.* We have reviewed the record and the magistrate judge's opinion and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of appealability and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the magistrate judge. Massenburg v. Warden, No. CA-95-857 (E.D.Va. Feb. 8, 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 parties consented to the exercise of jurisdiction by a magistrate judge under 28 U.S.C.A. § 636(c)(1) (West 1993)
