U.S. Supreme Court

City of Los Angeles v. Lyons, 453 U.S. 1308 (1981)

City of Los Angeles v. Lyons

No. A-230

Decided September 29, 1981

453 U.S. 1308

Syllabus

An application to stay the Court of Appeals' order affirming the District Court's preliminary injunction -- which prohibits members of applicant city's police department from using "choke-holds" in making arrests under circumstances that are not life threatening -- is granted, pending the filing and disposition of a petition for certiorari. There is a substantial likelihood that four Members of this Court will vote to grant certiorari to review the Court of Appeals' holding that respondent, who had once been subject to such a "choke-hold," has standing to maintain the action, and there are sufficient equities in the city's favor to warrant the stay.
