JURISDICTION IN DOUBT:
Ervin's tapes suit
dismissed byjdge
eY j

WASHINGTON (,P) - A fed-
eral judge yesterday dismissed
the Senate Watergate commit-
tee's suit against President Nix-
on, ruling the court had no juris-
diction in the matter.
The committee had asked U.S.
District Court Judge John Sir-
ica to uphold the legality of its
subpoena demanding the tape re-
cordings of five presidential con-
versations about the Watergate
scandal.
A committee spokesperson said
the decision would probably be
appealed.
IN A BRIEF ORDER, Sirica
said the court lacked jurisdic-
tion in the tapes suit, an argu-
ment made by the White House
in its oposition to the commit-
tee's civil action.
"No' jurisdictional statute
known to the court, including the
four which plaintiffs name, war-
rants an assumption of jurisdic-
tion, and the court is therefore
left with no alternative here but
to dismiss the action," Sirica
said.
Sirica said that having con-
cluded that he had no jurisdic-
tion'he did not consider the con-
stitutional issues raised in t h e
case.
THE JUDGE pointed out that
federal law required the com-
mittee to have congressional au-
thorization to file a suit and that
it failed to seek it.
"Whether such jurisdiction
ought to be conferred is the pre-
rogative of the Congress," Sirica
said.
Committee chief counsel Sam-
uel Dash was not in Washington
and could not be reached by tele-
phone. However, deputy chief
counsel Rufus Edmisten said he
expects the committee to appeal
the decision.

members of the committee have
not had time to read the decision
yet but the committee more than
likely will appeal," Edmisten
said. "That's all I can say at this
time."
In an 18-page opinion Sirica
rejected point by point the com-
mittee's arguments contending
that the court had jurisdiction.
Sirica's decision followed by
less than a week the U.S. Court
of Appeals ruling upholding his
earlier order in the -case involv-
ing nine tapes subpoened by spec-
ial Watergate prosecutor Archi-
bald Cox.
