Boughton v. Exchange Bank, 104 U.S. 427 (1881)

Boughton v. Exchange Bank

104 U.S. 427

Syllabus

This Court has no jurisdiction to re-examine the judgment of a state court unless the record shows affirmatively or by fair implication that a federal question necessary to the determination of the cause is involved.

This was a suit brought in the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia by the American Exchange National Bank against John W. Boughton upon two promissory notes whereof he was the maker. His affidavit of defense alleging usury having been declared to be insufficient, judgment was rendered against him which was affirmed by the supreme court of the state. He then sued out this writ.
