Magnum Import Co., Inc. v. Coty

Nos. 978, 979, 980, 982, 981

Argued on return to rule to show cause April 16, 17, 1923

Decided May 7, 1923

262 U.S. 159


1. Under Jud.Code, § 262, this Court has power to suspend or modify an interlocutory or final decree of the circuit court of appeals, which is reviewable under § 240 by certiorari, pending the disposition of a petition filed here for the issuance of that writ. P. 262 U. S. 162.

2. The jurisdiction to bring up cases from the circuit court of appeals by certiorari was given for the two purposes of securing uniformity of decision in the circuits and of having questions of importance decided by this Court when desirable in the public interest, not for the purpose of giving the defeated party another hearing. P. 262 U. S. 163.

3. An application to suspend a judgment of the circuit court of appeals pending disposition of a petition for certiorari here should be first made to that court, which is free to determine it upon its own view of the likelihood of a certiorari's being granted and of the balance of convenience. P. 262 U. S. 163.

4. If the application be refused by that court, a stay will be granted here, pending the application for certiorari, only upon an extraordinary showing, and, even after certiorari has been granted, only in a clear case and upon a decided balance of convenience. P. 262 U. S. 164.
