Mills v. Louisiana

No. 74

Argued April 22, 1959

Decided June 8, 1959

360 U.S. 230


Refusing an offer of full immunity from state prosecution and claiming the federal privilege against self-incrimination, petitioners were convicted of contempt in a state court for refusing to answer before a state grand jury questions the answers to which they claimed would expose them to federal prosecution for violation of the income tax laws. There was evidence of close cooperation between state and federal authorities.

Held: the judgments are affirmed on the authority of Knapp v. Schweitzer, 357 U. S. 371.
