United States of America v. Samuel H. Powell, Appellant, 90 F.3d 591 (D.C. Cir. 1996)Annotate this Case
Before: WILLIAMS, HENDERSON, and TATEL, Circuit Judges.
This appeal was considered on the record from the United States District Court for the District of Columbia and on the briefs filed by the parties. The court has determined that the issues presented occasion no need for an opinion. See D.C. Cir. Rule 36(b). It is
ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that appellant's convictions be affirmed. Appellant has shown no constitutionally improper denial of his opportunity to cross-examine witnesses. See Delaware v. Van Arsdall, 475 U.S. 673, 678-79 (1986). Furthermore, given the overwhelming evidence of appellant's guilt, including his arrest at the scene and the independent eyewitness identifications, any error was harmless. Id. at 684.
The Clerk is directed to withhold issuance of the mandate herein until seven days after disposition of any timely petition for rehearing. See D.C. Cir. Rule 41.
