US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit - 306 F.2d 880 (2d Cir. 1962) Argued August 21, 1962
Decided August 21, 1962

Arnold Wallach, New York City (Harold O. N. Frankel, New York City, on the brief), for appellant.

Arthur I. Rosett, Asst. U. S. Atty. (Robert M. Morgenthau, U. S. Atty., for the Southern District of New York, New York City, Robert J. Geniesse, Asst. U. S. Atty., on the brief), for appellee.

Before LUMBARD, Chief Judge, and MOORE and MARSHALL, Circuit Judges.


We affirm the judgment of conviction. There was abundant evidence to support Judge Murphy's conclusion, sitting without a jury, that the appellant had control of the narcotics and his finding that the appellant was guilty as charged of violations of 21 U.S.C. §§ 173, 174.
