Holmes v. Conway

No. 335

Argued May 1, 1916

Decided June 12, 1916

241 U.S. 624

92 Kan. 787, 93 id. 246, affirmed.

The facts, which involve the validity under the due process provision of the Fourteenth Amendment of a judgment of a state court, are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
