    U.S. Supreme Court

    ALABAMA v. FINCH, 396 U.S. 552 (1970)

    396 U.S. 552

    ALABAMA v. FINCH, SECRETARY OF HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND WELFARE, ET AL.
    ON MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE BILL OF COMPLAINT
    No. 38, Orig.
    Decided February 2, 1970

    State of Alabama's motion for leave to file complaint invoking Court's original jurisdiction fails to state claim warranting exercise of such jurisdiction.

    Motion denied.

    Albert P. Brewer, Governor of Alabama, Daniel J. Meador, and Maury D. Smith on the motion.

    PER CURIAM.

    On January 26, 1970, the plaintiff filed a motion seeking leave to file a complaint invoking the original jurisdiction of this Court naming Robert Finch, as Secretary of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, and John N. Mitchell, as Attorney General of the United States, as defendants.

    The alleged emergent nature of the claims for relief led the Court to give expedited consideration to the motion and proffered complaint and, having examined the complaint, we conclude it fails to state a claim against either of the defendants warranting the exercise of the original jurisdiction of this Court.

    Accordingly, the motion for leave to file the said complaint is denied. [396 U.S. 552, 553]
