United States v. Storrs
Argued November 24, 1926
Decided December 13, 1926
272 U.S. 652
A plea to abate an indictment because of the presence of a court stenographer at the grand jury investigation and of improper participation in the proceedings by the district attorney does not cease to be a plea in abatement and become a plea in bar, within the
meaning of the Criminal Appeals Act, from the circumstance that, by the time when it was sustained, the statute of limitations had intervened to prevent further prosecution. P. 272 U. S. 654.
Writ of error dismissed.
Error to a judgment of the district court sustaining a plea and abating an indictment.
