United States Vs. Sisson

Court : US Supreme Court

Decided on : Jun-29-1970

..... to "settle the law as to future cases of like character. " 41 cong.rec. 2194 (1907) (emphasis added). it is difficult to imagine a case more closely fitting into this rationale than that now before us. the class of nonreligious conscientious objectors is not likely to be a small one. indeed, under the impetus of this holding, it is likely to ..... to a situation that congress clearly intended to reach, the debates appear to contemplate both cases as appropriate for appeal to this court -- certainly the evil aimed at -- and the rationale of the act is broad enough to encompass both situations. appeal was to be for the purpose of deciding "constitutional questions," "questions of law" which, if the district judge's ..... it all of its common law antecedents, and the the present case does not meet the criteria required by the common law. my disagreement with the court's result and rationale is prompted by a fundamental disagreement with the court's mode of analysis and its excessive reliance on ancient practices of common law england long superseded by acts of congress .....

Williams Vs. Florida

Court : US Supreme Court

Decided on : Jun-22-1970

..... had no thought at all of using that evidence in his own behalf. these cases are sufficient evidence of the inch-by-inch, case-by-case process by which the rationale of today's decision can be used to transform radically our system of criminal justice into a process requiring the defendant to assist the state in convicting him, or be ..... of all a barrier raised by any constitutional prohibition on compelling the defendant to be a witness against himself. page 399 u. s. 115 the dangerous implications of the jones rationale adopted today are not, however, limited to the disclosure of evidence that the defendant has already decided he will use at trial. in state v. grove, 65 wash.2d 525 ..... a "notice of alibi" provision, but, in effect, the decision opens the way for a profound change in one of the most important traditional safeguards of a criminal defendant. the rationale of today's decision is in no way limited to alibi defenses, or any other type or classification of evidence. the theory advanced goes at least so far as to .....

Dandridge Vs. Williams

Court : US Supreme Court

Decided on : Apr-06-1970

..... total number of families in the state as in need of birth control incentives. not only is the classification effected by the regulation totally underinclusive if this is its rationale, but it also arbitrarily punishes children for factors beyond their control, and overinclusively applies to families, like appellees', that were already large before it became necessary to seek ..... the basis of that discrimination -- the classification of individuals into large and small families -- is too page 397 u. s. 530 arbitrary and too unconnected to the asserted rationale, the impact on those discriminated against -- the denial of even a subsistence existence -- too great, and the supposed interests served too contrived and attenuated to meet the requirements of ..... the state virtually conceded that it set out to limit the total cost of the program along the path of least resistance. now, however, we are told that other rationales can be manufactured to support the regulation and to sustain it against a fundamental constitutional challenge. however, these asserted state interests, which are not insignificant in themselves, are ..... in the district court, and in briefs to this court, the state apparently abandoned reliance on the fiscal justification. in its place, there have now appeared several different rationales for the maximum grant regulation, prominent among them being those relied upon by the majority -- the notions that imposition of the maximum serves as an incentive to welfare recipients .....

Oregon Vs. Mitchell

Court : US Supreme Court

Decided on : Dec-21-1970

..... gillette 58-77. while the reasons for these actions are unclear, it is unlikely that they were provoked by the idea that the fourteenth amendment covered the field; such a rationale seemingly would have made the enfranchising provision itself unnecessary. page 400 u. s. 167 the 41st congress readmitted the remaining three states of the confederacy. the admitting act in each ..... i now read it, gave congressional power under 5 the furthest possible legitimate reach. yet to sustain the constitutionality of 302 would require an enormous extension of that decision's rationale. i cannot but conclude that 302 was beyond the constitutional power of congress to enact. [ footnote 5/1 ] 2 m. farrand, records of the federal convention of 1787, p. 153 .....

..... . 218 , 388 u. s. 239 (1967). mr. justice harlan, concurring in the result. i concur in today' judgment, but, in doing. so wish to dissociate myself from the "equal protection" rationale employed by the court to justify its conclusions. the "equal protection" analysis of the court is, i submit, a "wolf in sheep's clothing," for that ..... rationale is no more than a masquerade of a supposedly objective standard for subjective judicial judgment as to what state legislation offends notions of "fundamental fairness." under the rubric of "equal .....

Hadley Vs. Junior Coll. Dist.

Court : US Supreme Court

Decided on : Feb-25-1970

..... 's desire to encourage cooperation among districts, are constitutionally inadequate to justify any divergence from voting "equality." page 397 u. s. 69 the court does not, however, spell out any rationale for concluding that such matters of administrative convenience deserve no weight in determining what is "practicable." this is especially incongruous in light of the court's unexplained conclusion that deference ..... . s. 67 in their structure. if these considerations are inadequate to stave off the extension of the reynolds rule to units of local government, they at least provide a persuasive rationale for applying that rule so as to allow local governments much more play in the joints. such an approach is not foreclosed by the previous cases. in reynolds, 377 u .....

Price Vs. Georgia

Court : US Supreme Court

Decided on : Jun-15-1970

..... the position that, by appealing the assault conviction, the defendants had waived any double jeopardy claim respecting the murder charge. mr. justice holmes concurred in the result without stating his rationale. kepner had been decided in the previous year, however, and his concurrence could have indicated that, for him, a waiver theory was too narrow -- instead he considered that even an ..... of these premises, the holding in the kepner case -- that there could be no appeal from an acquittal because such a verdict ended an accused's jeopardy -- was applicable. the rationale of the green holding applies here. the concept of continuing jeopardy implicit in the ball case [ footnote 4 ] would allow petitioner's retrial for voluntary manslaughter after his first conviction .....

Parker Vs. North Carolina

Court : US Supreme Court

Decided on : May-04-1970

..... encouragement. rarely, if ever, have we overturned an act of congress for what proves to be so frivolous a reason. moreover, the court's present covert rejection of the jackson rationale, together with its acceptance of the result in jackson, leads to a striking anomaly. since the death penalty provision of the kidnaping act remains void, those who resisted the pressures ..... of the penalty scheme. this much is merely the teaching of jackson. the court has elected to deny this latter aspect of jackson, but in doing so it undermines the rationale on which jackson was decided. in jackson, we invalidated the death penalty provision of the kidnaping act because the act's penalty scheme as a whole encouraged guilty pleas and .....

..... in passing on an application for a certificate of abandonment, the commission is, as penn central puts it, "a uniquely qualified finder of fact. . . ." [ footnote 71 ] at once, the "refinement" rationale confronts an imposing obstacle raised by the commission's own second supplemental report. that report makes clear that the commission had the element of delay before it in making its .....
