National Socialist Party v. Village of Skokie, 434 U.S. 1327 (1977)

National Socialist Party of America v. Village of Skokie

No. A-162

Decided August 26, 1977

434 U.S. 1327


Application for stay of Illinois trial court's injunction preventing applicants from displaying swastika "in the course of a demonstration, march, or parade," pending the Illinois Supreme Court's review of the Appellate Court's decision modifying the original injunction and upholding the above portion, is denied where it does not appear that the controversy will become moot pending appeal or that the Illinois courts failed to comply with this Court's order for "immediate appellate review," and where a stay would be tantamount to a decision on the merits in applicants' favor.
