Abdul-Hasib AL-MUSAWWIR, Petitioner-Appellant, v. Harold W. CLARKE, Director, Virginia Dept. of Corrections, Respondent-Appellee.
Decided: July 19, 2019
Before MOTZ, WYNN, and DIAZ, Circuit Judges.
Abdul-Hasib Al-Musawwir, Appellant Pro Se.
Abdul-Hasib Al-Musawwir appeals the district court's order accepting the recommendation of the magistrate judge and determining that his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (2012) petition was an unauthorized, successive petition and dismissing the petition without prejudice for lack of jurisdiction. We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis and affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. Al-Musawwir v. Clarke, No. 2:19-cv-00006-RGD-RJK (E.D. Va. filed Apr. 11, 2019; entered Apr. 12, 2019). We deny as unnecessary a certificate of appealability. See Harbison v. Bell, 556 U.S. 180, 183, 129 S.Ct. 1481, 173 L.Ed.2d 347 (2009). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
Affirmed by unpublished per curiam opinion.
