U.S. Supreme Court

Williams v. Simons, 355 U.S. 49 (1957)

Williams v. Simons

No. 74, Misc.

Decided November 18, 1957

355 U.S. 49


A Federal District Court issued a temporary restraining order restraining the Governor and other officials of Michigan from continuing with proceedings under state law for the removal of certain municipal officers for alleged misfeasance in office. Without passing on the merits of the complaint or a motion to dismiss it, a three-judge District Court, convened to consider the case, continued the temporary restraining order in effect for several months, pending determination of criminal proceedings against the same municipal officers. The Governor and Attorney General filed a motion in this Court for leave to file a petition for writ of mandamus or for writs of prohibition and mandamus directed against the members of the three-judge District Court to compel them to decide the motion for a preliminary injunction and the motion to dismiss, or to refrain from proceeding further in the cause and to vacate the temporary restraining order. This Court issued an order to the members of the District Court to show cause why a writ of mandamus or prohibition should not issue. The District Court, on motion of one of the complainants in the proceeding before it, then vacated its temporary restraining order and dismissed the complaint.

Held: it appearing that the cause has become moot, the rule to show cause is discharged, and the motion is denied. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
