Simmons v. West Haven Housing Auth., 388 U.S. 510 (1970)

Simmons v. West Haven Housing Authority

No. 81

Argued December 8, 1969

Decided June 29, 1970

388 U.S. 510


The appeal, involving the issue whether a Connecticut statutory requirement that tenants wishing to appeal from an eviction judgment must post a bond offends the Due Process or Equal Protection Cause if applied to foreclose appellate review for indigent tenants, is dismissed, as the record is ambiguous regarding the underlying reason appellants were denied an opportunity to appeal the eviction judgment.

5 Conn.Cir. 282, 250 A.2d 527, dismissed.
