Joseph E. Piatt, Appellant, v. United States of America, Appellee, 329 F.2d 883 (D.C. Cir. 1964)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit - 329 F.2d 883 (D.C. Cir. 1964) Argued February 10, 1964
Decided February 20, 1964

Mr. Milton V. Freeman, Washington, D. C., with whom Mr. Richard B. Sobol, Washington, D. C. (both appointed by this court) was on the brief, for appellant.

Mr. David Epstein, Asst. U. S. Atty., with whom Messrs. David C. Acheson, U. S. Atty., and Frank Q. Nebeker and Donald S. Smith, Asst. U. S. Attys., were on the brief, for appellee.

Before BAZELON, Chief Judge, and WRIGHT and McGOWAN, Circuit Judges.


Counsel appointed by this court to represent the appellant have presented for our consideration, by brief and oral argument, the only issues fairly raised by the record. Having examined these issues, we find them without sufficient merit to warrant reversal. Assigned counsel's effort, however, in presenting the issues available, and thus insuring an appeal for an indigent defendant, is in the best tradition of the bar.
