Cousins v. Wigoda, 409 U.S. 1201 (1972)

Cousins v. Wigoda

No. A-1

Decided July 1, 1972

409 U.S. 1201


Respondent sought in state court a declaratory judgment that he had been duly elected as a delegate to the Democratic National Convention scheduled to convene on July 10, 1972, and an injunction prohibiting applicants from interfering. Applicants obtained a United States District Court injunction against the injunctive aspect of the state court action, but that injunction was vacated by the Court of Appeals.

Held: The state courts being available to applicants for vindication of their constitutional claims, the application for a stay of the Court of Appeals order is denied.

See: 463 F.2d 603.
