Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 439 F.2d 1200 (9th Cir. 1971) April 13, 1971

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Central District of California; David W. Williams, Judge.

J. B. Tietz (argued), Los Angeles, Cal., for appellant.

David Fox, Asst. U. S. Atty. (argued), Irving Prager, Asst. U. S. Atty., Robert L. Meyer, U. S. Atty., Los Angeles, Cal., for appellee.

Before CHAMBERS, HUFSTEDLER and WRIGHT, Circuit Judges.


The judgment of conviction in this selective service case is reversed.

After the conviction in the trial court, our United States v. Mount was decided on February 5, 1971, (our No. 24,902) 9 Cir., 438 F.2d 1072. It held that our United States v. Haughton, 413 F.2d 736, was retroactive.

We hold Mount governs here.
