US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 851 F.2d 356 (4th Cir. 1988) Submitted: May 26, 1988. Decided: July 5, 1988

John Robert Lay, appellant pro se.

Before K.K. HALL, JAMES DICKSON PHILLIPS and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:


John Robert Lay seeks to appeal the district court's order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Lay v. Virginia State Parole Board, C/A No. 88-458-AM (E.D. Va. April 20, 1988). We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.

DISMISSED.
