Daniel v. Louisiana, 420 U.S. 31 (1975)

Daniel v. Louisiana

No. 74-5369

Decided January 27, 1975

420 U.S. 31


The decision in Taylor v. Louisiana, 419 U. S. 522, wherein it was held that the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments require petit juries to be selected from a source fairly representative of the community and that such requirement is violated by the systematic exclusion of women from jury panels, is not to be applied retroactively, as a matter of federal law, to convictions obtained by juries empaneled prior to the date of that decision. DeStefano v. Woods, 392 U. S. 631.

297 So.2d 417, affirmed.
