William Thornton Blakey, Plaintiff-appellant, v. B. Vassar, Chairman; Richard H. Barrick, Defendants-appellees, 804 F.2d 677 (4th Cir. 1986)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 804 F.2d 677 (4th Cir. 1986) Submitted July 28, 1986. Decided Nov. 4, 1986

William Thornton Blakey, appellant pro se.

Michael A. Likavec, Office of the Attorney General; Frederick W. Payne, for appellees.

E.D. Va.


Before WIDENER and PHILLIPS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.


A review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that an appeal from its order refusing habeas corpus relief 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. Blakey v. Vassar C/A No. 86-161-R (E.D. Va., June 24, 1986).
