Lawrence Martin, Petitioner-appellant, v. Aaron Johnson, Attorney General of the State of Northcarolina, Respondents-appellees, 810 F.2d 194 (4th Cir. 1987)Annotate this Case
Submitted Nov. 28, 1986. Decided Jan. 21, 1987
Before HALL and WIDENER, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.
Lawrence Martin, appellant pro se.
Richard Norwood League, Office of the Attorney General of North Carolina, for appellees.
A review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that an appeal from its 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 district court. Martin v. Johnson, C/A No. 86-336-HC (E.D.N.C., Aug. 11, 1986).
