BOHANAN v. STATE OF NEBRASKA.

118 U.S. 231 (6 S.Ct. 1049, 30 L.Ed. 71)

BOHANAN v. STATE OF NEBRASKA.1

Decided: April 19, 1886

Statement of Case from pages 231-233 intentionally omitted

Wm. Leese, Atty. Gen. Neb., for the motion.

Chas. O. Whedon, in opposition.

WAITE, C. J.

This motion is denied. Bohanan set up specially an immunity from a second trial for the same offense, by reason of article 5 of the amendments of the constitution of the United States. This was denied him by the judgment of the supreme court of the state, and we have jurisdiction to review that decision. Upon a motion to dismiss we cannot consider the merits of the question on which our jurisdiction depends, and no motion has been made to affirm.
