Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 836 F.2d 548 (4th Cir. 1987) Submitted Nov. 18, 1987. Decided Dec. 17, 1987

James W. Zeise, appellant pro se.

Richard Bain Smith, Office of the Attorney General of Virginia, for appellees.

Before DONALD RUSSELL, SPROUSE, and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges.


A review of the record and the magistrate's opinion discloses that an appeal from his 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 magistrate. Zeise v. Greene, C/A No. 87-318 (E.D. Va. Jun. 25, 1987).
