Wise v. Lipscomb
Decided August 30, 1977
434 U.S. 1329
Application for stay of the Court of Appeals' judgment directing the District Court to require the exclusive use of single-member districts in the election of the Dallas, Tex., City Council, and for recall of the mandate, pending review by this Court, is granted, where it appears that there is a reasonable probability that at least four Members of this Court will vote to grant certiorari, and that, if a stay is not granted, the issues would become moot and the incumbent City Council's capacity to function effectively might be impaired.
