U.S. Supreme Court

Bailey v. Alabama, 211 U.S. 452 (1908)

Bailey v. Alabama

No. 538

Submitted November 12, 1908

Decided December 21, 1908

211 U.S. 452


This Court cannot require the state court to release persons held for trial because the evidence fails to show probable cause, and in this case, the judgment of the highest court of the state dismissing a writ of habeas corpus is affirmed without consideration of the questions on the merit and the constitutionality of the state statutes under which the accused was held, although such questions were discussed by the state court.

Quaere, and not decided, whether the statutes of Alabama involved in this case establish a system of peonage in violation of the Constitution and laws of the United States.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
