Lewis William Capleaner, Petitioner-appellant, v. W. P. Rogers, Warden, Respondent-appellee, 825 F.2d 406 (4th Cir. 1987)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 825 F.2d 406 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted July 9, 1987. Decided July 29, 1987

Lewis William Capleaner, appellant pro se.

Thomas Drummond Bagwell, Assistant Attorney General, for appellee.

Before RUSSELL, MURNAGHAN and CHAPMAN, 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, deny appointment of counsel, dispense with oral argument, and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Capleaner v. Rogers, C/A No. 86-495-AM (E.D. Va., Feb. 2, 1987).
