Boehning v. Indiana State Employees Assn., Inc.
Decided November 11, 1975
423 U.S. 6
In this suit raising the question whether the federal constitutional rights of respondent state employee were violated by her discharge from employment over her request for a pre-termination hearing, the District Court properly abstained from deciding that question pending state court construction of the relevant state statutes, because it appears that the statutes may require the hearing demanded, thus obviating the need for decision on constitutional grounds.
Certiorari granted; 511 F.2d 834, reversed and remanded.
