Rehearing Denied May 17, 1951

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia; Frank A. Hooper, Jr., Judge.

John K. Meredith, in pro. per.

Harvey H. Tisinger, Asst. U. S. Atty., J. Ellis Mundy, U. S. Atty., Atlanta, Ga., for appellee.

Before HUTCHESON, Chief Judge, and HOLMES and BORAH, Circuit Judges.


Insisting that the matters presented by his petition for writ of habeas corpus have not been heretofore presented, either in his Sec. 2255, 28 U.S.C.A., proceedings or in the previous appeals to this court from denials of prior petitions,1  and that the contentions he makes require relief, appellant urges upon us that the district judge erred in denying his petition.

The judgment of denial was right. It is affirmed.
