342 U.S. 163
Because the question whether a court of three judges is required by 28 U.S.C. § 2282 in a suit to restrain on constitutional grounds enforcement of congressional enactments affecting only the District of Columbia is a question of general importance to judicial administration within the District of Columbia and is necessarily before the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in a pending appeal taken by petitioners, the case arising on their petition for a writ of mandamus filed in this Court and raising the same question is continued on the docket to await the views of the Court of Appeals. Pp. 342 U. S. 163-164.
