U.S. Supreme Court

Leis v. Flynt, 439 U.S. 438 (1979)

Leis v. Flynt

No. 77-1618

Decided January 15, 1979

439 U.S. 438


The interest of out-of-state attorneys, who were not admitted to practice law in Ohio, in representing defendants in an Ohio criminal prosecution held not to be a cognizable property or liberty interest within the terms of the Fourteenth Amendment, absent any showing of an independent state or federal law source for the interest. Hence, the Constitution did not obligate the Ohio courts to accord such attorneys procedural due process on their application for permission to appear pro hac vice.

Certiorari granted; 574 F.2d 874, reversed and remanded.
