John E. Walsh, Appellant Pro Se. Gwynn X. Kinsey, Jr., Assistant Attorney General, Baltimore, Maryland, for Appellees.
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 accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of appealability and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Walsh v. Smith, No. CA-95-2421-MJG (D.Md. Dec. 29, 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.
