New York v. O'Neill

No. 53

Argued November 20, 1958

Decided March 2, 1959

359 U.S. 1

Syllabus

While temporarily in Florida, respondent was summoned to appear at a hearing to determine whether he should be delivered into the custody of a New York official to be taken to New York to testify in a grand jury proceeding. This procedure, and adequate safeguards to protect persons subject to it, were established in Florida by the enactment of the Uniform Law to Secure the Attendance of Witnesses from Within or Without a State in Criminal Proceedings, which had been enacted also in New York, 39 other States and Puerto Rico.

Held: the Florida statute, on its face, does not violate the Privileges and Immunities Clause of Art. IV, § 2 of the Constitution nor the Privileges and Immunities or Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. Pp. 359 U. S. 3-12.
