In re Berg, 409 U.S. 1238 (1972)

In re Berg

No. A-460

Decided November 2, 1972

409 U.S. 1238


Applicants, who were found in civil contempt after refusing to testify before a grand jury, have applied for a stay, contending that they and their attorneys were subjected to illegal electronic surveillance. The Government denied such surveillance with respect to the applicants, and asserted its unawareness thereof with respect to the attorneys, but did not show that diligent inquiry had been made.

Held: A stay is granted until the matter can be presented to, and acted on by, the full Court.
