Appellant appeals from the district court's order denying relief on his petition filed under 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1994), amended by Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, Pub.L. No. 104-132, 110 Stat. 1214. We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinion and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of appealability and dismiss on the reasoning of the district court. Brown v. Netherland, No. CA-95-715-AM (E.D.Va. May 22, 1996). We deny Appellant's motions for the appointment of counsel, objecting to the terms of the Prison Litigation Reform Act, for compliance with prior court order, and requesting this court to order the institution where he is incarcerated to follow the procedures stated in this court's prior order.


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.
