Reset A A Font size: Print

United States Supreme Court


No. 546

Argued: Decided: March 21, 1960

Certiorari granted; judgment vacated; and case remanded.

Petitioner pro se.

Solicitor General Rankin for the United States.


The motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis is granted. Upon the suggestion of the Solicitor General that the case be remanded to the Court of Appeals in light of what we are informed is the present practice of that court "to appoint an attorney in all cases on direct appeal where the trial judge's certificate of bad faith is attacked" the petition for writ of certiorari is granted. The judgment of the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit is vacated and the case is remanded to that court for further proceedings. [362 U.S. 216, 217]
