Simon Peter Chesson, appellant pro se.
Richard Norwood League, Office of the Attorney General, for appellee.
Before JAMES DICKSON PHILLIPS, CHAPMAN 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, dispense with oral argument, and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Chesson v. State of North Carolina, C/A No. 86-921-HC (E.D.N.C. June 18, 1987).
