Before MARIS, GOODRICH and O'CONNELL, Circuit Judges.
The question presented by this appeal is whether the Administrative procedure Act, 5 U.S.C.A. 1001 et seq., applies to a deportation hearing conducted by the Immigration and Naturalization Service. The hearing given the appellant did not conform to the requirements of the Act. The question has been ruled in favor of the appellant by the Supreme Court in Wong Yang Sung v. McGrath, 70 S. Ct. 445, decided February 20, 1950. Upon the authority of that decision the order of the district court will be reversed and the cause will be remanded with directions to reinstate the writ of habeas corpus and thereupon to discharge the appellant from custody.
Judge O'CONNELL participated in the hearing of this case but died before it was decided.
