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
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).
