United States v. Ginsberg

No. 401

Argued March 15, 1917

Decided April 9, 1917

243 U.S. 472


When several question are certified under Jud.Code, 239, and answers to part will dispose of the case, answer to the rest may be omitted.

Section 9 of the Naturalization Act, c. 3592, 34 Stat. 596, requires that final hearings upon petitions for naturalization shall be held entirely in open court; a hearing in the judge's chambers adjoining the courtroom does not satisfy this requirement.

Under § 15 of the act, a certificate of citizenship granted by the court or judge on a state of facts showing the petitioner not qualified for citizenship is subject to be annulled in an independent suit by the United States.

The case is stated in the opinion.
