Robert L. Meyer, U.S. Atty., David R. Nissen, chief, Crim. Div., Richard H. Kirschner, Asst. U.S. Atty., Los Angeles, Cal., for plaintiff-appellee.
Before CHAMBERS, DUNIWAY and HUFSTEDLER, Circuit Judges.
The order, 305 F. Supp. 465, denying relief under 28 U.S.C. 2255 is vacated. The district court is directed to vacate the judgment and set the guilty plea aside and take such other proceedings as may be appropriate.
This is required by the action of this court in United States v. Weber, Case No. 25,107, on July 28, 1971, and in Castro v. United States, Case No. 25,197, on August 12, 1971, after both cases were remanded to this court following the granting of certiorari by the Supreme Court.1
Of course, these cases were not available to the district court at the time of its decision.
The orders in our Weber and Castro cases follow as an appendix.
