Holmes v. Conway

No. 335

Argued May 1, 1916

Decided June 12, 1916

241 U.S. 624


The due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment does not control mere forms of procedure in state courts, or regulate practice therein.

All the requirements of the due process provision of the Fourteenth Amendment are complied with provided the person condemned has sufficient notice and is afforded adequate opportunity to defend.

the attorney set up that he had been denied due process of law by not being given adequate notice or a fair opportunity to defend. Held that, as the record doe not sustain his contention in those respects, this Court cannot say that he has been deprived of a federal right.

92 Kan. 787, 93 id. 246, affirmed.

The facts, which involve the validity under the due process provision of the Fourteenth Amendment of a judgment of a state court, are stated in the opinion.
