Keith Prestwood, Petitioner-appellant, v. Nathan B. Rice; Attorney General of North Carolina,respondents-appellees, 825 F.2d 408 (4th Cir. 1987)Annotate this Case
Keith Prestwood, appellant pro se.
Richard Norwood League, Office of the Attorney General, for appellees.
Before HALL, ERVIN and CHAPMAN, 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. Prestwood v. Rice, C/A No. 86-620-HC (E.D.N.C., Feb. 23, 1987).
