Lynum v. Illinois

Court Documents

United States Supreme Court

368 U.S. 908

Lynum  v.  Illinois

Consideration of the petition for certiorari is deferred to accord counsel for petitioner opportunity to secure a certificate from the Supreme Court of Illinois as to whether the judgment herein was intended to rest on an adequate and independent state ground, or whether decision of the federal claim, identified in respondent's second response as having been asserting by the petitioner at pages 66-67 in her brief in the Supreme Court of Illinois, was necessary to the judgment rendered. Cf. Loftus v. People of State of Illinois, 334 U.S. 804, 68 S.Ct. 1212, 92 L.Ed. 1737; Herb v. Pitcairn, 324 U.S. 117, 65 S.Ct. 459, 89 L.Ed. 789.

Mr. Justice FRANKFURTER dissenting:


This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States federal government (see 17 U.S.C. 105).
