U.S. Supreme Court

Chessman v. Teets, 350 U.S. 3 (1955)

Chessman v. Teets

No. 196

Decided October 17, 1955

350 U.S. 3


Petitioner applied to a Federal District Court for a writ of habeas corpus, claiming that his automatic appeal to the California Supreme Court from a conviction for a capital offense had been heard upon a fraudulently prepared transcript of the trial proceedings.

Held: his application alleged a denial of due process of law in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment; it should not have been summarily dismissed, and the case is remanded to the District Court for a hearing.

221 F.2d 27 reversed.
