James Edward Brown, pro se.
Jacqueline G. Epps, Office of the Attorney General, for appellees.
Before K.K. HALL, SPROUSE, and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.
A review of the record and the district court's opinion accepting the magistrate's recommendation discloses that this appeal from its order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 is 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. Brown v. Director, Virginia Department of Corrections, C/A No. 86-486-N (E.D. Va. May 19, 1987).
