Reset A A Font size: Print

United States Supreme Court


No. 617

Argued: Decided: June 01, 1965

Appeal dismissed.

Herman J. McDevitt for appellants.

Allan G. Shepard, Attorney General of Idaho, and M. Allyn Dingel, Jr., Assistant Attorney General, for Williams et al., appellees.


The appeal in this case concerns an order of the United States District Court for the District of Idaho staying this reapportionment suit until 30 days after the adjournment of the 1965 Session of the Idaho Legislature. The Idaho Legislature, after adopting a new reapportionment plan, adjourned on March 25, 1965. The stay order now having expired by its own terms and the District Court and the parties now being in a position to proceed promptly with this litigation, the motions to dismiss are granted and the appeal is dismissed.
