C.j. Gaines, Petitioner-appellant, v. Jerry C. Hedrick, Warden, West Virginia Penitentiary,respondent-appellee, 854 F.2d 1316 (4th Cir. 1988)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 854 F.2d 1316 (4th Cir. 1988) Submitted May 31, 1988. Decided July 28, 1988

C.J. Gaines, appellant pro se.

Jill Leone Miles, Office of Attorney General, for appellee.

Before SPROUSE, ERVIN, and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.


C.J. Gaines appeals from 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 accepting the recommendation of the magistrate discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the district court. Gaines v. Hedrick, C/A No. 87-142-E-K (N.D.W. Va. Mar. 30, 1988). We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.
