Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Alaska, No. CV-96-00072-HRH; H. Russel Holland, Chief District Judge, Presiding.

Before: WALLACE, NOONAN and THOMPSON, Circuit Judges.


In United States v. Barron, No. 96-36058 (9th Cir. 1997), filed contemporaneously with this Memorandum Disposition, we held that tie district court has the discretion to void an entire plea agreement and return the parties to the status quo ante when a petitioner successfully challenges his guilty plea to one of several counts of conviction under a motion filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255, and his conviction and sentence on that count is vacated. Our opinion in Barron resolves all of the issues raised in this case.
