Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 812 F.2d 1401 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted Dec. 31, 1986. Decided Feb. 17, 1987

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Richmond. Richard L. Williams, District Judge. (C/A No. 86-195-R).

Curtis Gay, appellant pro se.

Richard B. Smith, Assistant Attorney General, for appellees.

E.D. Va.


Before RUSSELL, MURNAGHAN and ERVIN, Circuit Judges.


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. Gay v. Garraghty, C/A No. 86-195-R (E.D. Va., Aug. 15, 1986).
