Robert Wayne DAME, Petitioner-Appellant,
Raymond M. MUNCY, Attorney General of the State of Virginia,
United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.
Submitted March 27, 1987.
Decided August 21, 1987.
NOTICE: Fourth Circuit I.O.P. 36.6 states that citation of unpublished dispositions is disfavored except for establishing res judicata, estoppel, or the law of the case and requires service of copies of cited unpublished dispositions of the Fourth Circuit.
Robert Wayne Dame, appellant pro se.
Jacqueline G. Epps, Assistant Attorney General, for appellees.
Before K.K. HALL, JAMES DICKSON PHILLIPS and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.
A review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that an appeal from its order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2254 would be without merit. Because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively, we deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal, deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis, dispense with oral argument, and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Dame v. Muncy, C/A No. 85-0953-R (W.D. Va., Dec. 2, 1986).
