Douglas v. Green

No. 438, Misc.

Decided June 6, 1960

363 U.S. 192

Syllabus

In petitioner's application to a Federal District Court for a writ of habeas corpus, his allegation that the Supreme Court of Ohio did not provide him, as an indigent criminal defendant, with an adequate remedy for the prosecution of an appeal from his conviction without payment of docket fees made out a case of denial of equal protection of the laws. Therefore, certiorari is granted, the judgment denying a writ of habeas corpus is reversed, and the cause is remanded to the District Court for further proceedings in the light of Burns v. Ohio,360 U. S. 252. Pp. 363 U. S. 192-193.

Judgment reversed and cause remanded.
