Aaron v. Cooper, 357 U.S. 566 (1958)

Aaron v. Cooper

No. 1095

Decided June 30, 1958

357 U.S. 566

Syllabus

A Federal District Court entered an order authorizing public school officials of Little Rock, Ark., to suspend until January, 1961, a plan of racial integration previously approved by that Court and affirmed by the Court of Appeals, and it denied a stay of its suspension order pending appeal. After an appeal to the Court of Appeals had been docketed and application for a stay had been made to that Court, petitioners applied to this Court for a writ of certiorari to review the order of the District Court before the Court of Appeals had had an opportunity to act on the petition for a stay or to hear the appeal.

Held: the writ is denied on the assumption that the Court of Appeals will act upon the application for a stay or the appeal in ample time to permit arrangements to be made for the next school year. Pp. 357 U. S. 566-567.
