Before CLARK, Associate Justice,*  LUMBARD, Chief Judge, and KAUFMAN, Circuit Judge.


We affirm in open court the judgment of the district court denying plaintiff's petition for a writ of habeas corpus, on the ground that denial of petitioner's pro forma request for a suppression hearing did not violate due process, for the reasons given in Judge Weinstein's opinion, reported at 292 F. Supp. 116.
