PICKENS v. SUPERIOR COURT OF STATE OF CALIFORNIA IN AND FOR SACRAMENTO COUNTY (1954)
Supreme Court of California, In Bank.
Lawrence L. PICKENS and Elfrieda Pickens, husband and wife, Petitioners, v. SUPERIOR COURT OF STATE OF CALIFORNIA, IN AND FOR SACRAMENTO COUNTY, Respondent.
Decided: March 01, 1954
F. H. Bowers, Roseville, and Thomas F. Sargent, Auburn, for appellant petitioners. McAllister & Johnson and Walter C. Frame, Sacramento, for respondent.
This is a mandamus proceeding in which the judgments in consolidated actions reviewed on appeal in Pickens v. Johnson, Cal.Sup., 267 P.2d 801, are attacked on one of the grounds urged on that appeal. Inasmuch as the appeal disposes of that issue, the petition for the writ is denied and the alternative writ discharged. See California Toll Bridge Authority v. Durkee, 40 Cal.2d 341, 253 P.2d 673.
DOOLING, J. pro tem., sat in the place of the CHIEF JUSTICE, who deemed himself disqualified.
