PartiesGeorge Joseph TROYAN, Petitioner, v. The UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, the State of Ohio Bureau of Paroles, Respondents.
CourtU.S. District Court — District of Kansas

Arthur E. Palmer, (appointed), Topeka, Kan., for plaintiff.

Benjamin E. Franklin, Asst. U. S. Atty., Topeka, Kan., for defendant.

TEMPLAR, District Judge.

On May 12, 1964 the petitioner filed a Motion-Application for Writ of Restrainment in which he contended the defendants should be restrained for the following reasons:

(1) That the State of Ohio, with consent and knowledge, turned him over to the United States Government for prosecution and therefore forfeited all future rights to custody of plaintiff;
