No. 540

Argued April 25, 1957

Decided May 6, 1957

353 U.S. 322

Syllabus

1. The District Court's order in this case duly enforced the right of the Civil Aeronautics Board to call for documents relevant to the issues in a proceeding before the Board, with appropriate provision for assuring the minimum interference with the conduct of respondents' business. Pp. 353 U. S. 322-324.

2. The judgment of the Court of Appeals, reversing that of the District Court and establishing certain procedural requirements for the Board to follow before issuance of an enforcement order, is reversed, and the cause is remanded to the District Court with instructions to reinstate its enforcement order. Pp. 353 U. S. 323-324.

3. This enforcement order leaves open to respondents ample opportunities for objecting, on relevant grounds, to the admission into evidence of any particular document. P. 353 U. S. 324.

237 F.2d 359 reversed and remanded.
