American Trial Lawyers Assn. v. New Jersey Supreme Court

No. 72-691

Decided January 15, 1973

409 U.S. 467

Syllabus

In abstaining so as to permit a state court to pass on an issue of state law, a district court should retain jurisdiction pending the state proceeding so that appellants may preserve their right to litigate their federal claims in federal courts at the conclusion of the state proceeding.

Vacated and remanded.
