Itow & Fushimi v. United States, 233 U.S. 581 (1914)

Itow & Fushimi v. United States

No. 714

Argued April 8, 1914

Decided May 11, 1914

233 U.S. 581


Judicial Code § 134, governing the right to review cases in the District of Alaska, changed the general rule of the prior law by taking capital cases out of the class which could come to this Court directly because they were capital cases and by bringing such cases within the final reviewing power of the Circuit Court of Appeals of the Ninth Circuit. Under § 247, Judicial Code, this Court has power to review directly the action of the district courts of Alaska practically in the same classes of cases as were provided in § 5 of the Judiciary Act of 1891.

Although, under §§ 134 and 247, Judicial Code, the right to direct review on a constitutional question is confined to cases where the question was raised in the court below, this Court still has power to pass upon the question either by certificate from the circuit court of appeals or by certiorari from this Court if, in its judgment, the question was of sufficient importance to warrant issuing the writ.

The facts, which involve the jurisdiction of this Court to review judgments of the district courts of Alaska in capital cases and the construction of § 134, Judicial Code, are stated in the opinion.
