Baggett v. Bullitt Case Brief

Facts of the Case

The staff and students brought a class action, seeking to declare unconstitutional two Washington statutes. The statutes were 1955 Wash. Laws ch. 377 and 1931 Wash. Laws ch. 103, both of which required employees of the State of Washington to take the oaths prescribed in the statutes as a condition of their employment. The staff and students also sought an injunction against enforcement of the statutes by the state officials. The district court found the statutes to be constitutional and refused the grant the injunction.
