David E. Paschall, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Ralph W. Packard, Warden, Defendant-appellee, 807 F.2d 175 (4th Cir. 1986)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 807 F.2d 175 (4th Cir. 1986) Submitted Oct. 17, 1986. Decided Dec. 5, 1986

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

David E. Paschall, appellant pro se.

Mary Ellen Barbera, Office of the Attorney General, for appellee.


A review of the record and the district court's opinion accepting the magistrate's recommendation discloses that this appeal from its order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 is without merit. Because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively, we dispense with oral argument and affirm the judgment below on the reasoning of the district court. Paschall v. Packard, C/A No. 86-175-R (D. Md., Aug. 8, 1986).
