Charles O. Williamson, Appellant, v. William H. Hardwick, Warden, United States Penitentiary, Atlanta, Ga., et al., Appellees, 227 F.2d 168 (5th Cir. 1955)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 227 F.2d 168 (5th Cir. 1955) October 19, 1955

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

Charles O. Williamson, in pro. per.

James W. Dorsey, U. S. Atty., Harvey H. Tisinger, Asst. U. S. Atty., Atlanta, Ga., for appellee.

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


The proceeding out of which this appeal grows was commenced by a petition of habeas corpus, the basis of which was that the action of the United States Board of Parole in first paroling him and later revoking the parole was illegal. The district judge in dismissing the petition correctly stated the facts and applied the controlling law thereto. For the reasons and upon the authorities stated by the district judge, 135 F. Supp. 463, the judgment appealed from is affirmed.
