Coleman v. Miller

Coleman v. Miller On 5 June 1939, the Supreme Court held (7–2) that the courts lack jurisdiction to rule on what constitutes a “reasonable” period to set for ratifying a constitutional amendment and on whether a state might retract a vote for ratification, since both issues are political matters within Congress’s discretion.
