Ivan Douglas Hurt, Appellant, v. Virginia Department of Corrections, Appellee, 813 F.2d 401 (4th Cir. 1986)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 813 F.2d 401 (4th Cir. 1986) Submitted July 29, 1986. Decided Aug. 18, 1986

Before RUSSELL and HALL, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.

Ivan Douglas Hurt, appellant pro se.

Robert B. Condon, Office of the Attorney General, for appellee.


A review of the record and the district court's opinion accepting the magistrate's recommendation 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. Hurt v. Virginia Department of Corrections, C/A No. 85-584-N (E.D. Va., March 7, 1986).
