Elmer Donald Nash, Petitioner-appellant, v. State of Maryland, Respondent-appellee, 825 F.2d 407 (4th Cir. 1987)Annotate this Case
Elmer Donald Nash, appellant pro se.
Jillyn Kaberle Schulze, Office of the Attorney General, for appellee.
Before RUSSELL, WIDENER and PHILLIPS, Circuit Judges.
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. Nash v. State of Maryland, C/A No. 86-3291-HM (D. Md., March 11, 1987).
