Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 812 F.2d 1400 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted Dec. 29, 1986. Decided Feb. 23, 1987

Before WIDENER, HALL and MURNAGHAN, Circuit Judges.

Norman Allen Ayers, appellant pro se.

Stephen Howard Sachs, Attorney General, Ronald M. Levitan, Assistant Attorney General, 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. Ayers v. Dorsey, C/A No. 84-3947-Y (D. Md., July 18, 1986).
