Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 870 F.2d 656 (4th Cir. 1989)

Submitted Jan. 19, 1989. Decided Feb. 24, 1989

Eddie Wayne Wilkes, appellant pro se.

Barry Steven McNeill, Office of the Attorney General, for appellees.

Before MURNAGHAN, ERVIN, and CHAPMAN, Circuit Judges.


Eddie Wayne Wilkes seeks to appeal the district court's order denying his petition for a writ of habeas corpus, filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Our review of the record and of the district court's order adopting the magistrate's findings and recommendations reveals that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of probable cause and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Wilkes v. Griffin, C/A No. 87-94-S (M.D.N.C. Sept. 255, 1987). We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.
