The accused, on trial for a felony, was permitted by the trial judge to waive a jury. The trial before the judge alone resulted in an acquittal. The state's attorney petitioned for a writ of mandamus to expunge from the record the orders to dispose of the cause without a jury and for discharge of the accused, on the ground that the court had no jurisdiction to hear and determine the cause. Held, writ of mandamus denied. People ex rel. Swanson v. Fisher (Ill., 1930) 172 N.E. 722.
