Appellant seeks to appeal the district court's orders denying relief on his habeas corpus petition, 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988), as amended by Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, Pub.L. No. 104-132, 110 Stat. 1217, and denying his motion for reconsideration. We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinions and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal; to the extent that a certificate of appealability is required we deny such a certificate. We dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Davis v. Stone, No. CA-94-978-5-BR (E.D.N.C. Jan. 26, 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.
