Where, in a suit in a state court for the recovery of lands and damages for the detention of them, the whole controversy, so far as the title to them is concerned, is between the plaintiff, a citizen of the state where the suit is brought and such of the defendants as are citizens of that state, and the case of the other defendants is a mere adjunct of the principal dispute, the pleadings presenting no separate claim or question, held that under the Act of March 3, 1875, c. 137, the case is not removable to the circuit court.
The case is fully stated in the opinion of the Court.
