US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit - 261 F.2d 833 (6th Cir. 1958) November 3, 1958

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan; Thomas P. Thornton, Judge.

Flach Douglas, Cincinnati, Ohio, for appellants.

Before MARTIN and MILLER, Circuit Judges, and JONES, District Judge.


This cause has been heard and considered on appeal by two convicts from the denial of a petition for writ of habeas corpus filed by them.

Having duly considered the briefs and oral arguments and the record in the cause, conclusion has been reached that the dismissal of the petition for writ of habeas corpus by the district court was correct, for the reasons stated by United States District Judge Thornton in his carefully prepared and detailed opinion.

The judgment of the district court is affirmed.
