Connor v. Coleman
Decided May 19, 1976
425 U.S. 675
Motion for leave to file a petition for writ of mandamus to compel the District Court to enter a final judgment embodying a permanent reapportionment plan for the Mississippi Legislature is granted, there being no justification for delaying further a final decision in this 10-year litigation that complies with this Court's directive to the District Court that "[s]uch proceedings should go forward and be promptly concluded," Connor v. Williams, 404 U. S. 549, 404 U. S. 551-552. Since the District Court may be expected to conform its proceedings accordingly, consideration of the mandamus petition is continued.
