507 P.2d 1025 (1973)

29 Utah 2d 237

STATE of Utah, Plaintiff and Respondent, v. Thomas D. ROMANO, Defendant and Appellant.

Supreme Court of Utah.

March 16, 1973.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

D. Gilbert Athay, Salt Lake Legal Defender Assn., Salt Lake City, for defendant and appellant.

Vernon B. Romney, Atty. Gen., Salt Lake City, for plaintiff and respondent.

HENRIOD, Justice:

Appeal from an auto homicide conviction case, which we deem to be frivolous. Affirmed.

Appellant's counsel seems to agree with us, but dutifully followed the interdiction of Anders v. California,1 (by writing and filing a brief) to the effect that a lawyer, whose integrity and capabilities were unquestioned in that case, was not allowed to confess or report to an appellate court that he had no "meritorious" case...
