Corsetti v. Massachusetts, 458 U.S. 1306 (1982)

Corsetti v. Massachusetts

No. A-226

Decided September 1, 1982

458 U.S. 1306

Syllabus

An application to stay, pending review on certiorari, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court's judgment affirming applicant's conviction for criminal contempt and his 90-day sentence is denied. Although applicant has demonstrated that he will suffer irreparable harm, he has not demonstrated that the balance of equities in his favor is sufficient to overcome the strong doubt that certiorari will be granted or, in any event, that the judgment below will be reversed.
