Whalen v. Roe
Decided October 28, 1975
423 U.S. 1313
Application for stay of a three-judge District Court's judgment declaring unconstitutional provisions of New York Public Health Law requiring names and addresses of patients receiving certain prescription drugs to be reported to applicant Commissioner of Health, and enjoining enforcement of those provisions and acceptance of incoming prescriptions disclosing patients' identities, is denied, no showing having been made that applicant would suffer irreparable injury as a result of the denial of a stay.
