Hubert Wright, Petitioner-appellant, v. Dr. George J. Beto, Director, Texas Dept. of Corrections, Respondent-appellee, 446 F.2d 889 (5th Cir. 1971)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 446 F.2d 889 (5th Cir. 1971) August 16, 1971

Appeal from United States District Court, Northern District of Texas; William N. Taylor, Jr., District Judge.

Hubert Wright, pro se.

Crawford C. Martin, Atty. Gen., State of Tex., Larry J. Craddock, Asst. Atty. Gen., Nola White, First Asst. Atty. Gen., Alfred Walker, Executive Asst. Atty. Gen., Robert C. Flowers, Asst. Atty. Gen., Austin, Tex., for respondent-appellee.

Before BELL, AINSWORTH, and GODBOLD, Circuit Judges.


This appeal is without redeeming merit. It would have been appropriate for the district court to have denied the certificate of probable cause, thus terminating the processing of an insubstantial claim.



Rule 18, 5 Cir.; see Isbell Enterprises, Inc. v. Citizens Casualty Co., of New York et al., 5 Cir., 1970, 431 F.2d 409, Part I
