L. S. Lee et al., Appellants, v. City of Jesup, Appellee, 394 F.2d 503 (5th Cir. 1968)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 394 F.2d 503 (5th Cir. 1968) May 16, 1968

Aaron Kravitch, Kravitch & Hendrix, Savannah, Ga., for appellants.

William A. Zorn, Zorn & Royal, Jesup, Ga., for appellee.

Before BELL, AINSWORTH and GODBOLD, Circuit Judges.


Appellants are residents of an area adjacent to the corporate limits of Jesup, Georgia which was annexed to the city pursuant to an Act of the General Assembly of Georgia. Their attack on the legislation and the annexation failed in the state court. Lee v. City of Jesup, 1966, 222 Ga. 530, 150 S.E.2d 836, cert. den., 386 U.S. 993, 87 S. Ct. 1307, 18 L. Ed. 2d 337.

Their complaint in the District Court is without redeeming merit on any ground asserted, federal or state. It was nor error to render judgment for the city.
