Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 875 F.2d 315 (4th Cir. 1989) Submitted April 18, 1989. Decided May 11, 1989

Fred Murphy, appellant pro se.

Richard Norwood League, Clarence Joe DelForge, III, Office of the Attorney General of North Carolina, for appellees.

Before MURNAGHAN, CHAPMAN, and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.


Fred Murphy 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 accepting the recommendation of the magistrate 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. Murphy v. Bullock, C/A No. 88-295-HC (E.D.N.C. Feb. 13, 1989). We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.
