Petitioner appeals the denial of habeas corpus relief under 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2255. He contended that his retained attorney was incompetent, and that he had been denied the effective assistance of counsel at his trial.


The critical factual determination on the competence of counsel was made after a comprehensive hearing in which the district court gave careful consideration to every point urged by petitioner. The findings against the petitioner are supported by substantial evidence.
