411 U.S. 144

OHIO MUNICIPAL JUDGES ASSN. ET AL. v. DAVIS ET AL.
APPEAL FROM THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF
OHIO
No. 72-1010.

Decided March 26, 1973

Appellants' challenge to state constitutional provision, which District Court dismissed for inability to grant relief sought, held to be without merit.

Affirmed.

PER CURIAM.

The motion of American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio, Inc., for leave to file a brief, as amicus curiae, is granted.

On the ground that it was beyond its authority to grant the primary relief sought, the United States District Court dismissed appellants' suit which alleged that Art. IV, 6 (B), of the Ohio Constitution denied equal protection of the laws under the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The judgment is affirmed, but on the ground that appellants' constitutional challenge to Art. IV, 6 (B), was without merit.
