Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit - 915 F.2d 1557 (1st Cir. 1990) Sept. 20, 1990

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Maine Gene Carter, District Judge.

William A. Baranow on brief pro se.

Richard S. Cohen, United States Attorney and F. Mark Terison, Assistant United States Attorney, on brief, for appellee.

D. Me., 703 F. Supp. 134.


Before TORRUELLA, SELYA and CYR, Circuit Judges.


Baranow has preserved the following issues for appeal: (1) whether the government violated due process by relying on the allegedly perjured testimony of Richard Bellino; (2) whether the government concealed the existence of John Frank and thereby withheld exculpatory evidence; and (3) whether his attorney provided ineffective assistance by failing to cross-examine Bellino and failing to uncover Frank's existence. We think the district court has properly disposed of each of these issues in its opinion, reported at 703 F. Supp. 134 (D. Me. 1988). We affirm substantially for the reasons stated therein.
