Decided December 3, 1951

342 U.S. 117


1. In civil proceedings brought in the Federal District Court under R.S. § 1979, 8 U.S.C. § 43 (Civil Rights Act), petitioners sought an injunction against the use, in pending state criminal proceedings against them in New Jersey, of evidence claimed to have been obtained by an unlawful search by state police.

Held: the District Court properly dismissed the complaints. Pp. 342 U. S. 117-125.
