Attachment And Garnishment--Constitutional Law--Due Process Of Law--Garnishment Of Wages Prior To Judgment Is A Denial Of Due Process: The Sniadach Case And Its Implications For Related Areas Of The Law, Michigan Law Review

Michigan Law Review

The question of the constitutionality of prejudgment wage garnishment had never before reached the Supreme Court, although in McKay v. Mclnnes, a 1929 memorandum decision, the Court had upheld a statute providing for prejudgment attachment. McKay, which was cited as controlling by the Wisconsin court in its disposition of the constitutional argument in Sniadach, involved an attachment of realty and stock to satisfy a debt. Justice Douglas, writing for the Court in Sniadach, distinguished that case from one involving wage garnishment with the statement that "[a] procedural rule that may satisfy due process for attachments in general ... does not necessarily ...


Constitutional Reflections On Abortion Reform, Patrick L. Baude Jan 1970

Constitutional Reflections On Abortion Reform, Patrick L. Baude

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

Constitutional Law--The Right To A Jury Trial In Disbarment Proceedings, Michigan Law Review Jan 1970

Constitutional Law--The Right To A Jury Trial In Disbarment Proceedings, Michigan Law Review

Michigan Law Review

Lawyers in the United States have long been considered officers of the court, subject to examination for good moral character and adequate education in law before admission to the bar. They have also been subject to summary proceedings for disbarment whenever they have deviated from accepted standards of conduct embodied in various codes of professional ethics. Although the specific grounds for disbarment vary from state to state and between federal and state courts, one thing is clear: in the absence of a specific statutory provision there traditionally has been no right to a jury trial in disbarment proceedings. Since the ...
