Jones v. Perkins, 245 U.S. 390 (1918)
Jones v. Perkins
Argued December 13, 14, 1917
Decided January 7, 1918
245 U.S. 390
Petitioner sought habeas corpus upon the ground that the Selective Draft Law, for disobedience of which he was arrested, was unconstitutional. The constitutional questions he raises having all been decided adversely to him in the Selective Draft Law cases, ante, 245 U. S. 366, the Court affirms the trial court's order refusing the writ, without, however, departing from the general principle that habeas corpus should not anticipate trial in criminal cases in the absence of exceptional circumstances, and without inquiring whether, in this case, such circumstances existed.
23 F. 997 affirmed.
