U.S. Supreme Court
Smith v. Mississippi, 373 U.S. 238 (1963)
Smith v. Mississippi
Argued April 30, 1963
Decided May 13, 1963
373 U.S. 238
After oral argument and study of the record, it appears that the record is not sufficient to permit decision of petitioner's claims that, in his trial and conviction for rape, he was denied rights secured to him by the Fourteenth Amendment. Therefore, the writ of certiorari is dismissed as improvidently granted, without prejudice to an application for federal habeas corpus relief under 28 U.S.C. § 2241 after exhaustion of any state remedies still open to petitioner.
