357 US 220 Rogers v. S Richmond

357 U.S. 220

78 S.Ct. 1365

2 L.Ed.2d 1361

Harold D. ROGERS, petitioner,
Mark S. RICHMOND, Warden of Connecticut State Prison.

No. 755, Misc.

Supreme Court of the United States

June 16, 1958

Mr. Louis H. Pollak, for petitioner.

Mr. Abraham S. Ullman, for respondent.

On petition for writ of certiorari to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.



The petition for writ of certiorari is denied. We read the opinion of the Court of Appeals as holding that while the District Judge may, unless he finds a vital flaw in the State Court proceedings, accept the determination in such proceedings, he need not deem such determination binding, and may take testimony. See Brown v. Allen, 344 U.S. 443, 506, et seq., 73 S.Ct. 397, 445, 97 L.Ed. 469.
