U.S. Supreme Court
Doherty v. United States, 404 U.S. 28 (1971)
Doherty v. United States
Decided November 9, 1971
404 U.S. 28
The Court of Appeals (apparently on the basis of the inapplicability of a court rule) denied a motion, which petitioner as a claimed indigent filed after his conviction was affirmed, for appointment of counsel to assist in preparing a petition for a writ of certiorari. The case is remanded for reconsideration of petitioner's motion in the light of Criminal Justice Act provisions that might be relevant thereto.
Certiorari granted; vacated and remanded.
