James Martin Brown seeks to appeal from the district court's amended final order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988). Fed. R. Civ. P. 60(a). Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses no abuse of discretion and that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Brown v. Saunders, No. CA-91-319-3 (E.D. Va. Apr. 29, 1992). 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.
