United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Ivan Benitez, Defendant-appellant, 108 F.3d 339 (9th Cir. 1997)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 108 F.3d 339 (9th Cir. 1997) Submitted Feb. 18, 1997. *Decided Feb. 20, 1997

Before: ALARCN, CANBY, and TASHIMA, Circuit Judges.

MEMORANDUM** 

Ivan Benitez, a federal prisoner, appeals pro se the district court's order of July 31, 1996 denying Benitez's July 26, 1996 motion and request to compel the attorney in his criminal case to provide him with a copy of his trial transcript. The district court appears to have misunderstood Benitez's motion in its July 31, 1996 order. We vacate that order and remand with instructions that the district court order Benitez's attorney to provide Benitez with the trial transcript in the attorney's possession.

VACATED and REMANDED.
