Jeffries v. Barksdale

No. 80-6620

Decided June 29, 1981

453 U.S. 914

ON PETITION FOR WRIT OF CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED STATES

COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE SIXTH CIRCUIT

The petition for a writ of certiorari is denied.

JUSTICE REHNQUIST, with whom THE CHIEF JUSTICE and JUSTICE POWELL join, dissenting.

If this case were properly before the Court, I would have no difficulty in joining my Brethren in denying the petition for writ of certiorari. It is clear to me, however, that, under the applicable statutes, we have no jurisdiction to entertain the petition. Accordingly, I would dismiss for want of jurisdiction.
