Piccirillo v. New York, 400 U.S. 548 (1971)

Piccirillo v. New York

No. 97

Argued November 9, 1970

Decided January 25, 1971

400 U.S. 548


Writ of certiorari, granted to resolve question whether "transactional," rather than "use," immunity is constitutionally required to compel a witness to testify before a New York grand jury, is dismissed as improvidently granted in light of another decision by highest state court holding that transactional immunity is required in New York, and that its earlier decision in the instant case may have rested on that premise.

24 N.Y.2d 598, 249 N.E.2d 412, certiorari dismissed.
