United States of America v. Larry Anthony Baskin, Appellant, 993 F.2d 913 (D.C. Cir. 1993)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit - 993 F.2d 913 (D.C. Cir. 1993) April 26, 1993

Before: WALD, RUTH B. GINSBURG and SENTELLE, Circuit Judges.



This case was considered on the record from the United States District Court for the District of Columbia and on the briefs filed by the parties. The court has determined that the issues presented occasion no need for an opinion. See D.C. Cir. Rule 14(c). It is

ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that appellant's conviction be affirmed. The district court did not abuse its discretion in limiting appellant's cross-examination of the police officer so as to avoid disclosure of the identity of the confidential police informer. See McCray v. Illinois, 386 U.S. 300 (1967). Moreover, the record amply supports the district court's finding of probable cause to arrest appellant.

The Clerk is directed to withhold issuance of the mandate herein until seven days after disposition of any timely petition for rehearing. See D.C. Cir. Rule 15.
