Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 852 F.2d 1290 (9th Cir. 1988)

Ronny C. TURNER, Petitioner-Appellant,v.B.J. BUNNELL, Warden, Respondent-Appellee.

No. 87-2431.

United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.

Submitted June 13, 1988.* Decided July 13, 1988.

Before KOELSCH, WALLACE and BEEZER, Circuit Judges.


Turner appeals from the dismissal of his habeas corpus petition brought pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. We have jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2253. We affirm.

The issues properly raised by Turner have been exhausted in state court. Maxwell v. Sumner, 673 F.2d 1031, 1034-35 (9th Cir.), cert. denied, 459 U.S. 976 (1982). We will review only those issues presented to the district court.

The district court concluded that there was a due process violation, relying on Hawkins v. LaFevre, 758 F.2d 866 (2d Cir. 1985). We do not reach that question because even if there were a violation, we agree with the district court that any error would be harmless under the Chapman v. California, 386 U.S. 18 (1967), standard.

We affirm the district court on the other issues outlined in its opinion for the reasons stated by the district court.



The panel finds this case appropriate for submission without argument pursuant to 9th Cir.R. 34-4 and Fed. R. App. P. 34(a)
