Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 446 F.2d 1085 (5th Cir. 1971) August 10, 1971

John F. Tomlin, Pecos, Tex. (Ct. Appt.) for defendant-appellant.

Seagal V. Wheatley, U. S. Atty., Haskell Shelton, Asst. U. S. Atty., San Antonio, Tex., Ralph E. Harris, Asst. U. S. Atty., El Paso, Tex., for plaintiff-appellee.

Before BELL, AINSWORTH, and GODBOLD, Circuit Judges.


In conformity with the requirements established by Anders v. California, 1967, 386 U.S. 738, 87 S. Ct. 1396, 18 L. Ed. 2d 493, we have carefully considered this cause in its entirety, and conclude that there is no arguable merit in the appeal. It is therefore ordered, that the motion filed by John F. Tomlin, Esquire, for leave to withdraw as court-appointed counsel for Appellant is granted, and the appeal is dismissed. See Local Rule 20. See also Minor v. United States, 5th Cir. 1971, 444 F.2d 521.
