Eric Smith, Petitioner-appellant, v. Howard N. Lyles, Warden, Respondent-appellee, 861 F.2d 266 (4th Cir. 1988)Annotate this Case
Eric Smith, appellant pro se.
Richard Bruce Rosenblatt, Office of Attorney General of Maryland, for appellee.
Before JAMES DICKSON PHILLIPS, SPROUSE, and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges.
Eric Smith 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. Smith v. Lyles, CA-86-682-HAR (D. Md. Jan. 28, 1988). We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.
