United States of America Ex Rel. Fred Williams, Jr., Appellant, v. Alfred T. Rundle, 411 F.2d 794 (3d Cir. 1969)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit - 411 F.2d 794 (3d Cir. 1969) Argued March 4, 1969
Decided May 2, 1969

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania; John P. Fullam, Judge.

John W. Packel, Assistant Voluntary Defender, Defender Ass'n of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pa., for appellant.

Roger F. Cox, Asst. Dist. Atty., Philadelphia, Pa. (Joseph J. Musto, Asst. Dist. Atty., James D. Crawford, Asst. Dist. Atty., Chief, Appeals Division, Richard A. Sprague, First Asst. Dist. Atty., Arlen Specter, Dist. Atty., Philadelphia, Pa., on the brief), for appellee.


Before KALODNER, FREEDMAN and SEITZ, Circuit Judges.


The District Court denied the relator Williams' petition for a writ of habeas corpus and this appeal followed.

On review of the record we find no error. The contentions presented on this appeal were thoroughly considered seriatum in Judge Fullam's Memorandum Opinion and Order, 299 F. Supp. 1371 and it would serve no useful purpose to dwell on them here. The factual situation disclosed by the state trial records amply supports Judge Fullam's denial of habeas corpus relief for the reasons stated in his Memorandum Opinion and Order.

The Order of the District Court will be affirmed.
