Falbo v. United States

No. 73

Argued November 19, 1943

Decided January 3, 1944

320 U.S. 549

Syllabus

1. In a criminal prosecution under the Selective Training and Service Act of 1940 for willful failure to obey a local board's order to report for assignment to work of national importance, it is no defense that the registrant's classification as a conscientious objector, rather than as a minister, was erroneous. P. 320 U. S. 554.

2. Assuming a constitutional requirement that judicial review be available to test the validity of the board's classification, Congress was not required to provide for such renew prior to final acceptance of the registrant for service. P. 320 U. S. 554.

135 F.2d 464 affirmed.

Certiorari, 320 U.S. 209, to review the affirmance of a conviction for violation of the Selective Training and Service Act of 1940.
