Thomas Jones, Appellant, v. United States of America, Appellee, 326 F.2d 410 (8th Cir. 1964)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 326 F.2d 410 (8th Cir. 1964) January 23, 1964

Before JOHNSEN, Chief Judge, and MATTHES, Circuit Judge.


The appeal pending from the filing of notice of appeal to the District Court's order denying appellant's motion to vacate sentence under 28 U.S.C.A. § 2255 is permitted to be docketed without payment of fee. The Memorandum and Order of the District Court fully disposes of appellant's contentions and clearly shows that the appeal is frivolous. Leave to proceed further in forma pauperis is accordingly denied; the motion for appointment of counsel is overruled; and the appeal is hereby dismissed as frivolous.

Appeal docketed and dismissed.
