STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, Attorney General of North Carolina,
United States Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit.
Submitted March 31, 1988.
Decided May 12, 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NOTICE: Fourth Circuit I.O.P. 36.6 states that citation of unpublished dispositions is disfavored except for establishing res judicata, estoppel, or the law of the case and requires service of copies of cited unpublished dispositions of the Fourth Circuit.
Dwight Clifford Bunch, appellant pro se.
Richard Norwood League, Office of Attorney General of North Carolina, for appellees.
Before WIDENER, ERVIN, 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. Bunch v. State of North Carolina, C/A No. 87-224-SH (W.D.N.C. Dec. 11, 1987).
