Cert dismissed as improvidently granted in contempt case

Robertson v. U.S. ex rel Watson is here. The issue presented was previously summarized here, from ScotusWiki:

Whether an action for criminal contempt in a congressionally created court may constitutionally be brought in the name and pursuant to the power of a private person, rather than in the name and pursuant to the power of the United States.
