U.S. Supreme Court

Wood v. Broom, 287 U.S. 1 (1932)

Wood v. Broom

No. 424

Argued October 13, 1932

Decided October 18, 1932

287 U.S. 1


1. The provisions of the Reapportionment Act of August 8, 1911, requiring that congressional election districts be of contiguous and compact territory and, as nearly as practicable, of equal populations, related only to the districts to be formed under that Act, and were not reenacted in the Reapportionment Act of June 18, 1929. P. 287 U. S. 8.

2. Where a bill sought to compel state election officials to conform to an Act of Congress which the court found to be no longer in force, held that questions whether, if the Act were effective, the controversy would be justiciable and the plaintiff entitled to equitable relief need not be considered. Id.

1 F.Supp. 134 reversed.

Appeal from a decree of the District Court of three judges, which, on final hearing on bill and answer, permanently enjoined officers of the State of Mississippi from conducting an election of representatives in Congress, in pursuance of an act of the legislature which the decree declared to be invalid and unconstitutional. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
