Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 836 F.2d 545 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted Nov. 30, 1987. Decided Dec. 22, 1987

Frank Carpenter and Eileen Carpenter, appellants pro se.

Before DONALD RUSSELL and WILKINS, 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 would be without merit. Therefore, we deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis and dismiss the appeal based on the reasoning of the district court. We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues have recently been decided authoritatively. Carpenter v. West Virginia Department of Human Services, C/A No. 87-80-E (N.D.W. Va. July 8, 1987).
