U.S. Supreme Court

Singer v. United States, 323 U.S. 338 (1945)

Singer v. United States

No. 30

Argued November 9, 10, 1944

Decided January 2, 1945

323 U.S. 338


1. The conspiracy clause of § 11 of the Selective Training and Service Act of 1940, .4 Stat. 85, is not limited to conspiracies to "hinder or interfere in any way by force or violence" with the administration of the Act, but embraces all conspiracies to violate the Act. P. 323 U. S. 340.

2. The offense of conspiracy under § 11 of the Selective Training and Service Act, unlike that, under § 37 of the Criminal Code, does not require an overt act. P. 323 U. S. 340.

3. The principle of strict construction does not require that a criminal statute be given its narrowest possible meaning. P. 323 U. S. 341.

4. Where another interpretation is permissible, a statute should not be given a construction which makes it redundant. P. 323 U. S. 344.

5. As to a petitioner who died since the grant of a writ of certiorari to review a judgment of conviction, the writ is dismissed and the cause is remanded to the District Court for such disposition as law and justice require. P. 323 U. S. 346.

141 F.2d 262 affirmed.

Certiorari, 322 U.S. 720, to review the affirmance of judgments of conviction for conspiracy to violate the Selective Training and Service Act. See 49 F.Supp. 912.
