This is the second time these cases have been before us. In United States v. Wallace, 848 F.2d 1464 (9th Cir. 1988), we remanded the case, after finding error, for the district court to determine the prejudicial effect of those errors, if any both separately and cumulatively. Judge McGovern entered an order dated March 16, 1989, in which he held that the errors (Jencks Act, prior confession, prosecutorial vouching, and post-arrest statement) were not, either individually or cumulatively, such as to result in a miscarriage of justice or to cast doubt on the judicial proceedings.

After reviewing the briefs and the record and hearing oral argument, we are convinced that Judge McGovern is correct and we affirm his order on remand for the reasons he states.
