Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 825 F.2d 407 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted April 30, 1987. Decided July 22, 1987

William F. Knight, appellant pro se.

Charles G. Brown, III, Office of the Attorney General of West Virginia, for appellees.

Before WIDENER, ERVIN and WILKINSON, 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. Knight v. State of West Virginia, C/A No. 2:87-0219 (S.D.W. Va., Feb. 27, 1987).
