Petitions for writs of certiorari are at the risk of the parties making them, and whenever in the progress of the cause facts develop which, if disclosed on the application, would have induced a refusal, the court may, upon motion by a party or ex mero motu dismiss the writ. Such petitions should be carefully prepared, contain appropriate references to the record, and present with studied accuracy, brevity, and clearness whatever is essential to ready and adequate understanding of points requiring the court's attention.
When the real situation is not set forth by the petition, a duty rests on opposing counsel to reveal it in their reply.
Writ of certiorari to review 215 F. 859 dismissed.
The case is stated in the opinion.
