Stan A. Chatwood, Petitioner-appellant, v. Dan Vannelli; Attorney General for the State of Arizona,respondent-appellee, 120 F.3d 268 (9th Cir. 1997)Annotate this Case
Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Arizona Earl H. Carroll, District Judge, Presiding
Before: HUG, Chief Judge, KOZINSKI and LEAVY, Circuit Judges.
Chatwood appeals pro se the district court's denial of his 28 U.S.C. § 2254 petition challenging his 1986 conviction and 30 year sentence imposed for attempted murder, aggravated assault and endangerment. We affirm for the reasons stated in the magistrate judge's report. Because there are no exceptional circumstances warranting review of the arguments that Chatwood raises for the first time on appeal, we decline to do so. See United States v. Johnson, 988 F.2d 941, 945 (9th Cir. 1993).
