Lee Kum Hoy v. Murff
Argued November 21, 1957
Decided December 9, 1957
355 U.S. 169
Three Chinese children sought entry into the United States, claiming to be children of an American citizen, but they were excluded on the ground that blood grouping tests showed that the American citizen was not their parent. It appeared that the blood grouping tests were in some respects inaccurate, and the reports thereof partly erroneous and conflicting.
Held: the judgments heretofore entered are vacated, and the case is remanded to the District Court with directions that the hearings before the Special Inquiry Officer or a Board of Special Inquiry be reopened, so that new, accurate blood grouping tests may be made under appropriate circumstances, and that relevant evidence may be received as offered on the issues involved.
237 F.2d 307, judgments vacated and case remanded.
