John Rodgers Burnley, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Allyn R. Sielaff; Gerald Baliles, Attorney General; Johnpaul Causey, Defendants-appellees, 804 F.2d 1250 (4th Cir. 1986)Annotate this Case
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Richmond. David G. Lowe, United States Magistrate. (C/A No. 85-659-R)
John Rodgers Burnley, appellant pro se.
Richard B. Smith, Office of the Attorney General, for appellees.
Before PHILLIPS and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.
A review of the record and the magistrate's opinion discloses that an appeal from its order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 would be without merit. The parties consented to the jurisdiction of a magistrate pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(c) (1). 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 magistrate. Burnley v. Sielaff, C/A No. 85-659-R (E.D. Va., July 14, 1986).
