820 F.2d 1220
Michael Lee THOMAS, Petitioner-Appellant,
WARDEN, MARYLAND HOUSE OF CORRECTION, Respondent-Appellee.
United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.
Submitted April 29, 1987.
Decided June 9, 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NOTICE: Fourth Circuit I.O.P. 36.6 states that citation of unpublished dispositions is disfavored except for establishing res judicata, estoppel, or the law of the case and requires service of copies of cited unpublished dispositions of the Fourth Circuit.
Before ERVIN, CHAPMAN and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.
Michael Lee Thomas, appellant pro se.
Stephen H. Sachs, Attorney General, Valerie W. Lofton, Assistant Attorney General, for appellee.
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, dispense with oral argument, and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Thomas v. Warden, C/A No. 86-2540-JFM (D.Md., Jan. 13, 1987).
