Earl A. Muhammad, A/k/a Earl Chandler Evans, Petitioner-appellant, v. State of Maryland, Respondent-appellee, 810 F.2d 194 (4th Cir. 1987)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 810 F.2d 194 (4th Cir. 1987)

Submitted Nov. 17, 1986. Decided Jan. 15, 1987

Before RUSSELL, WIDENER and PHILLIPS, Circuit Judges.

Earl R. Muhammad, appellant pro se.

Stephen Howard Sachs, Office of the Attorney General, for appellee.


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.
