United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Samuel Joe Jackson, Defendant-appellant, 464 F.2d 1396 (5th Cir. 1972)Annotate this Case
Sept. 6, 1972.
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Florida.
Before BELL, DYER and CLARK, Circuit Judges.
Rule 18, 5 Cir.; see Isbell Enterprises, Inc. v. Citizens Casualty Company of New York et al., 5 Cir. 1970, 431 F.2d 409, Part I
See NLRB v. Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America, 5 Cir. 1970, 430 F.2d 966
The sole argument on this appeal urges that we depart from this Circuit's established rule which vests discretion in the trial court to permit the government to attack the defendant's credibility as a witness in his own behalf by showing prior felony convictions
