537 F2d 238 Hogan v. W J Estelle
537 F.2d 238
W. B. HOGAN, Petitioner-Appellant,
W. J. ESTELLE, Jr., Director, Texas Department of
United States Court of Appeals,
Aug. 20, 1976.
Ann Lents, Houston, Tex. (court-appointed), for petitioner-appellant.
Jack B. Boone, Asst. Atty. Gen., Austin, Tex., for respondent-appellee.
Before BROWN, Chief Judge, and GEWIN and MORGAN, Circuit Judges.
We have considered Hogan's contentions, including his assertion of ineffectiveness of trial and appellate counsel, and his argument as well as his assertion that his constitutional rights were abridged by the appointment of a psychologist, requested by the defense, rather than a psychiatrist to examine him for mental competency. We find all these contentions without merit and affirm on the basis of the district court's opinion, --- F.Supp. ---- (N.D.Tex.1976).
