18 motion to change counsel violated his Sixth Amendment Right; 2) he was denied his right to
19 access the courts and his right to due process was violated because he was not personally
20 interviewed by the author of the presentence report; 3) the method used by the state trial
21 court to call a jury panel violated his constitutional rights; 4) trial counsel was ineffective

23 ineffective because he did not challenge the state’s “failure” to prove the fair-market value
24 of the victim’s stolen property; and 6) trial counsel was ineffective because he “performed
