United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Morris Thomas, Defendant-appellant, 479 F.2d 1326 (5th Cir. 1973)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 479 F.2d 1326 (5th Cir. 1973) July 24, 1973

Neil L. Heimanson, Atlanta, Ga. (court-appointed), for defendant-appellant.

John W. Stokes, Jr., U. S. Atty., P. Bruce Kirwan, Asst. U. S. Atty., Atlanta, Ga., for plaintiff-appellee.

Before JOHN R. BROWN, Chief Judge, and DYER and SIMPSON, Circuit Judges.


In compliance with the mandate set forth in Anders v. California, 1967, 386 U.S. 738, 87 S. Ct. 1396, 18 L. Ed. 2d 493, we have carefully reviewed 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 Neil L. Heimanson, Esquire, for leave to withdraw as court-appointed counsel for Appellant is granted, and the appeal is dismissed as frivolous. See Local Rule 20. See also United States v. King, 5th Cir. 1972, 456 F.2d 1243; United States v. Mills, 5th Cir. 1971, 446 F.2d 1397; United States v. Minor, 5th Cir. 1971, 444 F.2d 521.
