Hayes v. Missouri, 120 U.S. 68 (1887)

Hayes v. Missouri

Submitted January 3, 1887

Decided January 17, 1887

120 U.S. 68


A statute of a state which provides that in capital cases in cities having a population of over 100,000 inhabitants, the state shall he allowed fifteen peremptory challenges to jurors, while elsewhere in the state it is allowed in such cases only eight peremptory challenges, does not deny to a person accused and tried for murder in a city containing over 100,000 inhabitants the equal protection of the laws enjoined by the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, and there was no error in refusing to limit the state's peremptory challenges to eight.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
