McGee v. Alaska

No. A-156

Decided September 9, 1983

463 U.S. 1339

Syllabus

An application for bail pending disposition of applicant state prisoner's petition for certiorari to review the Court of Appeals' affirmance of the District Court's denial of habeas corpus relief, is denied even though the State does not oppose applicant's release on bail. While state authorities can release applicant on bail, it is no part of the federal courts' function to allow bail in federal habeas corpus review of state proceedings simply because the State does not object. Moreover, the probability of this Court's granting certiorari in this case approaches, if it does not reach, zero.
