Robert W. Russell, Appellant v. David A. Garraghty; Attorney General of the State Ofvirginia, Appellees, 799 F.2d 751 (4th Cir. 1986)Annotate this Case
Before HALL, ERVIN and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.
Robert W. Russell, Appellant Pro Se. Richard B. Smith, Assistant Attorney General, for Appellees.
A review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that an appeal from its order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 would be without merit. Because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively, we deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal, dispense with oral argument, and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Russell v. Garraghty, C/A No. 85-0017-D (W.D. Va., Feb. 4, 1986).
