U.S. Supreme Court

Rawlins v. Georgia, 201 U.S. 638 (1906)

Rawlins v. Georgia

No. 547

Argued April 6. 1906

Decided April 16, 1906

201 U.S. 638


If the state constitution and laws in regard to selection of jurors, as construed by the state court, are consistent with the Fourteenth Amendment, this Court can go no further, and will not revise the decision of the state court as to whether the local law has been complied with.

There is nothing in the Fourteenth Amendment which prevents a state from excluding and exempting from jury duty certain classes on the bona fide ground that it is for the good of the community that their regular work should not be interrupted.

Even when persons liable to jury duty under the state laws are excluded, it is no ground for challenge to the array if a sufficient number of unexceptionable persons are present.

The facts are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
