Martin v. Walton, 368 U.S. 25 (1961)
Martin v. Walton
Argued October 17, 1961
Decided November 6, 1961
368 U.S. 25
Under a Kansas statute and rules promulgated by the Supreme Court of Kansas, a resident of Kansas who was duly licensed to practice law in both Kansas and Missouri and maintained law offices in both States was denied the right to appear in a Kansas court without associating local counsel, solely because he practiced regularly in Missouri.
Held: The state statute and rules are not beyond the allowable range of state action under the Fourteenth Amendment, and this appeal is dismissed for want of a substantial federal question. Pp. 368 U. S. 25-26.
187 Kan. 473, 357 P.2d 782, appeal dismissed.
