No. 82-6848

Decided November 7, 1983

464 U.S. 44

Syllabus

Held: The Court of Appeals' judgment is vacated, and the case is remanded, since both the Government's concession in its brief opposing the petition for certiorari that the District Court erroneously refused to give petitioner's character evidence instruction to the jury and its contention in this Court that the error was harmless should be presented to the Court of Appeals in the first instance.

Certiorari granted; vacated and remanded.
