United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.

David Lee SMITH, Petitioner - Appellant, v. Rick JACKSON, Respondent - Appellee.

No. 19-6499

Decided: August 27, 2019

Before KING and RICHARDSON, Circuit Judges, and HAMILTON, Senior Circuit Judge. David Lee Smith, Appellant Pro Se.

David Lee Smith seeks to appeal the district court's order denying his motion for release pending appeal of the court's order denying his Fed. R. Civ. P. 60(b) motions for reconsideration of the court's order denying relief on his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (2012) petition. We have reviewed the record and find no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the district court. Smith v. Jackson, No. 5:06-hc-02061-BO (E.D.N.C. Mar. 21, 2019). We deny Smith's motion for a certificate of appealability as unnecessary. 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.
