U.S. Supreme Court

Connally v. Georgia, 429 U.S. 245 (1977)

Connally v. Georgia

No. 76-461

Decided January 10, 1977

429 U.S. 245


A justice of the peace's issuance of a search warrant to search appellant' house, pursuant to Georgia statutory scheme whereby a justice of the peace, who is not salaried, is paid a prescribed fee for issuance of each warrant but receives nothing for his denial of a warrant, held to effect a violation of the protections afforded appellant by the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments. In such a situation, the defendant is subjected to judicial action by an officer of the court who "has a direct, personal, substantial, pecuniary interest," Tumey v. Ohio, 273 U. S. 510, 273 U. S. 523, in his decision to issue or deny the warrant.

237 Ga. 203, 227 S.E.2d 352, vacated and remanded.
