Defendants Chambers and Gibson were indicted on June 5, 1933, for conspiracy to violate the National Prohibition Act, and for possessing and transporting liquor in violation of the Act. Chambers pleaded guilty, and the case was continued to the December term. The case was called for trial as to Gibson on December 6, 1933. Chambers filed a plea in abatement, and Gibson demurred to the indictment. Held, the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment, by the adoption of the Twenty-first, proclaimed December 5, 1933, barred further prosecution. United States v. Chambers and Gibson, (U.S. Sup. Ct. 1934) 1 U.S. LAW WEEK, Feb. 6, 1934, p. 29 (index p. 485).
