Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 799 F.2d 751 (4th Cir. 1986) Submitted July 22, 1986. Decided Aug. 29, 1986

Before HALL, ERVIN and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM.


Robert W. Russell, Appellant Pro Se. Richard B. Smith, Assistant Attorney General, for Appellees.

PER CURIAM:

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).

DISMISSED.
