Ivan Douglas Hurt, appellant pro se.
Robert B. Condon (Office of the Attorney General), for appellee.
Before DONALD RUSSELL and K.K. HALL, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.
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, deny in forma pauperis status, dispense with oral argument, and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Hurt v. Murray, C/A No. 87-239-N (E.D.Va. July 30, 1987).
