Dolman v. United States
No. A-534 (78-987)
Decided December 21, 1978
439 U.S. 1395
Application to stay Court of Appeals' judgment and mandate affirming applicants' criminal contempt convictions for violating District Court's injunction is denied. The Court of Appeals apparently has granted a stay with respect to other individuals who were convicted of criminal contempt for violation of the same injunction; it is uncertain whether applicants have sought a stay from the Court of Appeals pending this Court's disposition of their petition for certiorari; and this Court has granted certiorari in a related case in which applicants' asserted basis for a stay will be reviewed. Accordingly, it is the better exercise of discretion to require applicants to apply to the Court of Appeals for a stay pending this Court's disposition of their petition for certiorari.
