Brownell made the announcement. Brownell noted that the .

These accusations were described by Federal dist. Judge Luther w. Youngdahl As a formless and obscure a and too vague for the 54-year-old Lattimore to defend. Youngdahl threw them out and his judgment on this was twice upheld by the court of appeals for the District of Columbia. The appeals courts second ruling was made june 14 on a 4-4 vote. The tie let the Youngdahl finding stand. This confronted the government with the Choice of appealing to the supreme court or going ahead with an attempted prosecution of Lattimore on five other counts which Lattimore a attorneys had described As the further possibility open to the government was to drop the whole prosecution. This is what it elected to do. Brownell said in a statement a upon a consideration of All aspects of the Case it has been decided not to apply to the supreme court for review on certiorari on the two counts that were recently invalidated. In the absence of these counts there is no reasonable likelihood of a successful prosecution on the five counts remaining from the first indictment.
