Kenneth Williams, Petitioner-appellant, v. Robert R. Kelly, Warden, Respondent-appellee, 838 F.2d 469 (4th Cir. 1988)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 838 F.2d 469 (4th Cir. 1988)

Submitted Oct. 30, 1987. Decided Jan. 27, 1988


Kenneth Williams, appellant pro se.

Linwood Theodore Wells, Jr., Office of Attorney General of Virginia, for appellee.

Before DONALD RUSSELL, K.K. HALL, and JAMES DICKSON PHILLIPS, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:


A review of the record and the magistrate's opinion discloses that an appeal from the 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. Williams v. Kelly, C/A No. 85-0919-R (E.D. Va. Aug. 7, 1987).

DISMISSED.
