Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 120 F.3d 268 (9th Cir. 1997) Submitted July 22, 1997**Decided July 24, 1997


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).



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir. R. 34-4
