Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 809 F.2d 786 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted June 25, 1986. Decided Jan. 5, 1987

Before WIDENER, CHAPMAN, and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.

Kenneth Wayne Woodfin, appellant pro se.

Katherine Baldwin Toone and Todd E. LePage, Office of the Attorney General, for appellee.


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. Woodfin v. Commonwealth of Virginia, C/A No. 85-657-R (E.D. Va. April 14, 1986).
