UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT, EASTERN DISTRICT NEW YORK.
July 3, 1956
UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff,
Gaetano LUCCHESE, etc., Defendant.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: INCH
INCH, Chief Judge.
This is a motion by defendant for leave to reargue his motions to dismiss the complaint upon the ground that this denaturalization proceeding was not instituted upon the filing of an affidavit showing good cause therefor and, upon such reargument, for a dismissal of the complaint, on the authority of the decision in United States v. Zucca, 351 U.S. 91, 76 S. Ct. 671, 100 L. Ed. 964. In that case, the United States Supreme Court held that, in a denaturalization proceeding, such as the instant one, the filing of the affidavit showing good cause is a procedural prerequisite to the initiation and maintenance of the proceeding. Therefore, this motion is granted and, after such reargument, the complaint is dismissed, without prejudice to the government's right to institute a proceeding to denaturalize the defendant upon the filing of the required affidavit. United States v. Zucca, supra. Settle order.
