Upon careful consideration of the record before the court together with the briefs and oral arguments of counsel the court concludes that the district court did not err in granting the petition for a writ of habeas corpus in this action. Accordingly, the judgment of the district court is affirmed on the basis of the opinion of Senior United States District Judge Ralph M. Freeman reported at 392 F.Supp. 659 (E.D.Mich.1975).
