Davis v. Adams, 400 U.S. 1203 (1970)

Davis v. Adams

Decided August 5, 1970*

400 U.S. 1203


Applicants, would-be candidates for Congress, seek to stay a judgment of the Florida Supreme Court upholding a state law that requires state officials to resign before becoming candidates for another office. Since the constitutional issues cannot be finally resolved before the September 8, 1970, primary election, and the risk of injury to the applicants outweighs that to Florida, the applications for stays are granted.

See: 238 So.2d 415.
