Peter Edward Jones, Petitioner-appellant, v. David Williams; Attorney General of the State of Virginia,respondents-appellees, 823 F.2d 547 (4th Cir. 1987)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 823 F.2d 547 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted May 28, 1987. Decided July 10, 1987

Peter Edward Jones, appellant pro se.

Frank Snead Ferguson, Assistant Attorney General, for appellees.

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


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. Jones v. Williams, C/A No. 86-626-R (E.D. Va., Feb. 18, 1987).
