|DAVID RAY CORY,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
(D.C. No. CIV-97-585-JC)
After examining the briefs and appellate record, this panel has determined unanimously to grant the parties' request for a decision on the briefs without oral argument. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(f); 10th Cir. R. 34.1.9. The case is therefore ordered submitted without oral argument.
David Cory appeals from a judgment denying his application for relief under 28 U.S.C. § 2255 in which he claimed the judgment against him should be vacated because he was arrested by "Military forces." The district court held the issue should have been raised by direct appeal, denied relief and dismissed the petition. The matter is pending before us upon application for a certificate of probable cause. Having reviewed the entire matter, we conclude the district court's judgment was correct. We DENY a certificate of probable cause for the reasons stated by the district court in its memorandum opinion and order. We note also the legal capacity of arresting officers is moot after conviction. See Washington v. United States, 292 F.2d 452, 453 (8th Cir. 1961).
