(3) "We ho'd §§401(j) and 349(a)(10) [8 U.S.C. §1481(a)(10)] invalid because in them Congress has plainly employed the sanction of deprivation of nationality as a punishment—for the offense of leaving or remaining outside the country to evade military service—without affording the procedural safeguards guaranteed by the Fifth and Sixth Amendments."; (4) legislative history indicates conclusively that provisions "can only be interpreted as punitive."

If he can the appellate ct. passes on the merits of his case only after having the full benefit of written briefs and oral argument by counsel. If he cannot the appellate ct. is forced to prejudge the merits before it can even determine whether counsel should be provided . . . where the merits of the one and only appeal an indigent has as of right are decided without benefit of counsel, we think an unconstitutional line has been drawn between rich and poor."

After citing Eskridge, 374.1, 357 U.S. 214, the Ct. concluded: ". . . the conclusion of the trial judge that an indigent's appeal is frivolous is a similarly inadequate substitute for the full appellate review available to nonindigents in Washington, when the effect of that finding is to prevent an appellate examination based upon a sufficiently complete record of the trial proceedings themselves."

452.1. Fay v. Noia (U.S.S.C., #84.) (183 F. Supp. 222, 300 F.2d 345.) Facts: VIII DOCKET 35. Mar. 18, 1963: U.S.S.C. (6-3) affirmed, per Brennan, J.: "The narrow question is whether the respondent Noia may be granted fedl. habeas corpus relief from imprisonment under a NY conviction now admitted by the State to rest upon a confession obtained from him in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment, after he was denied state post-conviction relief because the coerced confession claim had been decided against him at the trial and Noia had allowed the time for a direct appeal to lapse without seeking review by a state appellate ct." U.S.S.C. bases judgment on different reasoning from CA: "We hold: (1) Fedl. cts. have power under the fedl. habeas corpus statute to grant relief despite the applicant's failure to have pursued a state remedy not available to him at the time he applies; the doctrine under which state procedural defaults are held to constitute an adequate and independent state law ground barring direct Supreme Court review is not to be extended to limit the power granted the fedl. cts. under the fedl. habeas statute. (2) Noia's failure to appeal was not a failure to exhaust 'the remedies available in the cts. of the State' as required by [28 U.S.C.] §2254; that requirement refers only to a failure to exhaust state remedies still open to the applicant at the time he files his application for habeas corpus in the fedl. ct. (3) Noia's failure to appeal cannot under the circumstances be deemed an intelligent and understanding waiver of his right to appeal such as to justify the withholding of fedl. habeas corpus relief." In summarizing the history of the Great Writ, the Ct. wrote: "Its root principle is that in a civilized society, gov't. must always be accountable to the judiciary for a man's imprisonment: if the imprisonment cannot be shown to conform with the fundamental requirements of law, the individual is entitled to his immediate release." further holding: "But what we hold today necessarily overrules Darr v. Burford (339 U.S. 200) to the extent it may be thought to have barred a state prisoner from fedl. habeas relief if he had failed timely to seek certiorari in this ct. from an adversary state decision. Furthermore, our decision today affects all procedural hurdles to the achievement of swift and imperative justice on habeas corpus, and because the hurdle erected by Darr . . . is unjustifiable under the principles we have expressed, even insofar as it may be deemed merely an aspect of the statutory requirement of present exhaustion, that decision in that respect also is hereby overruled." And "We therefore hold that the fedl. habeas judge may in his discretion deny relief to an applicant who has deliberately bypassed the orderly procedure of the state cts. and in so doing has forfeited his state ct. remedies. . . . [But] A choice made by counsel not participated in by the Pet. does not automatically bar relief. Nor does a state ct's. finding of waiver bar independent determination of the question by the fedl. cts. on habeas, for waiver affecting fedl. rights is a fedl. question." Clark, J. diss.; Harlan, J.

Dec. 4, 1962: At hearing, Pet. denied he was person arrested on disorderly conduct charge, contended he could have proved his where-abouts in 1955 if Parole Bd. had acted sooner.

Va. Parole Bd. paroled Pet. in "custody and control" of Bd., limiting Pet's. activities in prescribed ways. Resp.-Penitentiary Sup't. moved CA to dismiss as moot because Pet. no longer in his custody; Pet. moved to add Bd. members as Resps. CA 4 dismissed, denied Pet's. motion. Jan. 14, 1963: U.S.S.C. reversed, per Black, J., held habeas corpus a proper remedy because "While pet's. parole releases him from immediate physical imprisonment, it imposes conditions which significantly confine and restrain his freedom; that is enough to keep him in the 'custody' of the . . . Bd. within the meaning of the habeas corpus statute;" . . .
