Crowell v. Mader - 444 U.S. 505 (1980)
U.S. Supreme Court
Crowell v. Mader, 444 U.S. 505 (1980)
Crowell v. Mader
Judgment vacated and case remanded October 1, 1979
Rehearing granted and case decided February 19, 1980
444 U.S. 505
After the State had appealed to this Court from the District Court's judgment invalidating a legislative senatorial districting plan, the Tennessee Legislature enacted a new plan. This Court then vacated the District Court's judgment and directed that the action be dismissed as moot.
Held: Since the recent legislation did not moot the entire case, but only the issue raised on appeal, this Court's prior order is vacated and, in lieu thereof, the District Court's judgment is vacated without prejudice to such further proceedings in that court as may be appropriate.
Rehearing granted; vacated.
