James H. BERRY, a/k/a James S. Berry, Petitioner-Appellant,
STATE OF MARYLAND, Respondent-Appellee.
United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.
Submitted Nov. 24, 1987.
Decided April 18, 1988.
NOTICE: Fourth Circuit I.O.P. 36.6 states that citation of unpublished dispositions is disfavored except for establishing res judicata, estoppel, or the law of the case and requires service of copies of cited unpublished dispositions of the Fourth Circuit.
James H. Berry, appellant pro se.
J. Joseph Curran, Jr., Attorney General, John S. Bainbridge, Jr., Office of Attorney General, for appellee.
Before JAMES DICKSON PHILLIPS, CHAPMAN, and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.
A review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal from its order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2254 is 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. Berry v. State of Maryland, C/A No. 87-388 (D.Md. June 22, 1987).
