Taylor v. McElroy, 360 U.S. 709 (1959)

Taylor v. McElroy

No. 504

Argued March 31

April 1, 1959

Decided June 29, 1959

360 U.S. 709


Petitioner, a lathe operator and tool and die maker at a plant which manufactures aircraft for the Government, lost his job because of revocation of his security clearance in proceedings similar to those involved in Greene v. McElroy, ante, p. 360 U. S. 474. After this Court had granted certiorari to review a judgment sustaining that action, his security clearance was restored, and the Solicitor General assured this Court that petitioner now stands in precisely the same position as all others who have been granted clearance, that the evidence in petitioner's file will not be used against him in the future, and that the findings against petitioner have been expunged.

Held: the cause is moot; and the judgment of the District Court is vacated, and the cause is remanded to that Court with instructions to dismiss the complaint as moot. Pp. 709-711.

Judgment vacated, and cause remanded.
