STATE EX REL. BARNEY NOEL HOLT, III
STATE OF LOUISIANA
SUPERVISORY WRITS TO THE FIRST JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT,
PARISH OF CADDO
Relator fails to show he received ineffective assistance of
counsel under the standard of Strickland v.
Washington, 466 U.S. 668, 104 S.Ct. 2052, 80 L.Ed.2d 674

procedural bars against successive filings mandatory.

successive application applies, relator has exhausted his
