United States v. Rundle

UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE THIRD CIRCUIT


decided: May 11, 1966.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA EX REL. MILTON BOWERS, APPELLANT,
v.
A. T. RUNDLE, SUPERINTENDENT, STATE CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION, PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA

McLaughlin, Hastie and Freedman, Circuit Judges.

Author: Per Curiam

With respect to the first of appellant's contentions which concerns the failure at trial to move to suppress allegedly illegally seized evidence, we agree with the District Court that, under the circumstances of this case, Pennsylvania law governs appellant's right to attack his conviction under Bill No. 1664. Fay v. Noia, 372 U.S. 391, 438, 439, 83 S. Ct. 822, 9 L. Ed. 2d 837 (1963); Henry v. State of Mississippi, 379 U.S. 443, 85 S. Ct. 564, 13 L. Ed. 2d 408 (1965).

The District Court correctly found that the specific claim of alleged ineffective assistance of counsel was never directly presented to the state courts. However, in order that no possible misunderstanding regarding this might arise and based on our own examination of the record before us, we find no substantial support for the assertion.

Finally, there was no abuse of discretion by the District Court in this matter.

The judgment of the District Court will be affirmed.

Disposition

The judgment of the District Court will be affirmed.
