Cardinale v. Louisiana, 394 U.S. 437 (1969)

Cardinale v. Louisiana

No. 76

Argued February 24, 1969

Decided April 1, 1969

394 U.S. 437


Since petitioner's contention that a Louisiana statute requiring that confessions be admitted into evidence in their entirety notwithstanding their inclusion of irrelevant and prejudicial material is unconstitutional -- the sole federal question argued in this Court -- was not raised, preserved, or passed on in the state courts, the writ of certiorari is dismissed for want of jurisdiction, as this Court will not decide federal questions raised here for the first time on review of state court decisions. Pp. 394 U. S. 438-439.

251 La. 827, 206 So.2d 510, certiorari dismissed for want of jurisdiction.
