United States Supreme Court

SMITH v. CROUSE, (1964)

No. 915

Argued:     Decided: June 22, 1964

Certiorari granted and judgment reversed.

Reported below: 192 Kan. 171, 386 P.2d 295.

Petitioner pro se.

William M. Ferguson, Attorney General of Kansas, and J. Richard Foth, Assistant Attorney General, for respondent.


The motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis and the petition for writ of certiorari are granted. The judgment is reversed. Douglas v. California, 372 U.S. 353 .

MR. JUSTICE HARLAN, dissenting.

In my opinion the question whether Douglas v. California, 372 U.S. 353 , should be given retroactive application is deserving of plenary consideration. Cf. my dissenting opinion in LaVallee v. Durocher, 377 U.S. 998 . [378 U.S. 584, 585]
