Pressler v. Blumenthal, 431 U.S. 169 (1977)

Pressler v. Blumenthal

No. 76-1005

Decided May 16, 1977

431 U.S. 169

ON APPEAL FROM THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT

FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

Syllabus

District Court's judgment dismissing complaint challenging constitutionality of certain provisions of Postal Revenue and Federal Salary Act of 1967 and 1975 Executive Salary Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act, is vacated, and case is remanded for further consideration in light of intervening amendment to PRFSA.

428 F.Supp. 302, vacated and remanded.

PER CURIAM.

The motion of We the People for leave to file a brief, as amicus curiae, is granted. The motion of James W. Jeffords, et al., for leave to file a brief, as amici curiae, is granted.

Appellant challenges the operation of certain provisions of the Postal Revenue and Federal Salary Act of 1967, 2 U.S.C. §§ 351-361, and of the 1975 Executive Salary Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act, 2 U.S.C. § 31 (1970 ed., Supp. V), relating to increases in salaries paid members of Congress. He asserts that the operation of these Acts violates Art. I, § 1, and § 6, cl. 1 (the Ascertainment Clause), of the Constitution.

On April 4, 1977, Congress passed an amendment to the Postal Revenue and Federal Salary Act. On April 12, the President signed that amendment into law. Pub.L. 95-19, 91 Stat. 45.

It appearing that the amendment to the Postal Revenue and Federal Salary Act will alter materially the scope and perhaps the nature of appellant's suit, the judgment of the District chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
