Audie Lee Mullins, Petitioner-appellant, v. Edward Murray; Attorney General of the State of Virginia,respondents-appellees, 838 F.2d 467 (4th Cir. 1988)Annotate this Case
Submitted: Dec. 15, 1987. Decided: Jan. 12, 1988
Audie Lee Mullins, pro se.
Robert Homer Anderson, III, Office of the Attorney General of Virginia, for appellees.
Before CHAPMAN and WILKINSON, 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 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. Mullins v. Murray, C/A No. 86-148-B (W.D. Va. July 1, 1987).
