U.S. Supreme Court

Groppi v. Leslie, 404 U.S. 496 (1972)

Groppi v. Leslie

No. 70-112

Argued November 10, 1971

Decided January 13, 1972

404 U.S. 496


Wisconsin legislative resolution citing petitioner for contempt for conduct on the floor of the State Assembly that occurred two days previous to the contempt resolution and sentencing him to confinement held violative of due process, since petitioner, who was readily available, was given no notice before the resolution was adopted or afforded any opportunity to respond by way of defense or extenuation. Pp. 404 U. S. 499-507.

436 F.2d 326 and 331, reversed.

BURGER, C.J.,delivered the opinion of the Court, in which all Members joined except POWELL and REHNQUIST, JJ., who took no part in the consideration or decision of the case.
