Nostrand v. Little - 368 U.S. 436 (1962)
U.S. Supreme Court
Nostrand v. Little, 368 U.S. 436 (1962)
Nostrand v. Little
Decided January 22, 1962
368 U.S. 436
After this Court's remand of this case, 362 U. S. 474, the State Supreme Court held that appellants, who are professors at the State University, are entitled to hearings before they can be discharged for refusal to swear that they are not members of the Communist Party or any other subversive organization, as required by a state statute. They again appealed from the judgment of that court sustaining the constitutionality of the statute against their claim, in a declaratory judgment proceeding, that it violates the First and Fourteenth Amendments.
Held: the appeal is dismissed for want of a substantial federal question.
