Berman v. United States (378 U.S. 530)

Court Documents
Dissenting Opinion

United States Supreme Court

378 U.S. 530

Berman  v.  United States (378 U.S. 530)

See 85 S.Ct. 14.

This case seems to me to be decided on the premise that it is more important that the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure be slavishly followed than that justibe be done. I cannot agree to any such principle and therefore dissent.

Bernard B. Polak, New York City, for petitioner.

Theodore G. Gilinsky, Washington, D. C., for respondent.

On Writ of Certiorari to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
