Ernest Edward Shaw, Petitioner-appellant, v. Edward W. Murray, Director; Attorney General of Virginia,respondents-appellees, 809 F.2d 786 (4th Cir. 1987)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 809 F.2d 786 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted Nov. 28, 1986. Decided Jan. 9, 1987

Before RUSSELL, SPROUSE and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges.

Ernest Edward Shaw, appellant pro se.

Richard B. Smith, Assistant Attorney General, for appellees.


A review of the record and the magistrate's opinion discloses that an appeal from his 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 magistrate. Shaw v. Murray, C/A No. 86-356-R (E.D. Va., Sept. 18, 1986).
