Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 112 F.3d 513 (8th Cir. 1997) April 23, 1997

Before ARNOLD, Chief Judge, FAGG, and MURPHY, Circuit Judges.


Atwell Jr. Conner appeals the district court's denial of Conner's third application for a writ of habeas corpus. Conner contends his ineffective assistance of counsel claims are not abusive and, alternatively, the claims should be heard to avoid a miscarriage of justice. Having considered the briefs and record in this case, we conclude Conner's arguments lack merit. Finding no error of law in the district court's analysis, we affirm for the reasons stated in its order. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
