U.S. Supreme Court

Bellotti v. Latino PAC, 463 U.S. 1319 (1983)

Bellotti v. Latino Political Action Committee

No. A-99

Decided August 11, 1983

463 U.S. 1319

Syllabus

An application to stay, pending the filing and disposition of a petition for a writ of certiorari, the District Court's judgment -- holding unconstitutional, and enjoining preliminary or final elections under, a new electoral districting plan for the election of members of the Boston City Council and the School Committee -- is denied. It is not reasonably probable that four Justices will consider the issues involved to be sufficiently meritorious to grant certiorari; nor is there a fair prospect that a majority of the Court will conclude that the decision below was erroneous. The inconvenience and delay imposed by the District Court's requirement that the districting plan be revised before elections can go forward are not so great as to warrant a stay.
