WILLIAMS V. ZUCKERT, 371 U. S. 531 (1963)

U.S. Supreme Court

Williams v. Zuckert, 371 U.S. 531 (1963)

Williams v. Zuckert

No. 133

Argued December 13, 1962

Decided January 14, 1963

371 U.S. 531


Certiorari was granted in this case to consider whether, under the principles enunciated in Vitarelli v. Seaton, 359 U. S. 535, the discharge of petitioner, a veteran with Civil Service status, from the United States Air Force for alleged misconduct was vitiated by an improper denial of a right to cross-examination at his hearing before the Civil Service Commission on appeal pursuant to § 14 of the Veterans' Preference Act and the Commission's regulations thereunder. Review of the record and argument of counsel, however, disclosed that petitioner's request for cross-examination of witnesses was neither timely nor in conformity with the applicable regulations.

Held: the Vitarelli issue is not adequately presented by this case, and the writ of certiorari is dismissed as improvidently granted. Pp. 371 U. S. 531-533. (But see 372 U. S. 765.)

111 U.S.App.D.C. 294, 96 F.2d 416, certiorari dismissed.
