Fraser v. Jennison, 106 U.S. 191 (1882)
Fraser v. Dennison
Decided November 20, 1882
106 U.S. 191
ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED
STATES FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
A paper writing purporting to be the last will and testament of A. wherein certain persons are named as executors was by them offered for probate. They were citizens of Michigan, as were the contestants, with the exception of two, who, by reason of their citizenship, prayed for the removal of the cause to the Circuit Court. Held that the cause was not removable, as it involves no controversy wholly between citizens of different states.
The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
MR. CHIEF JUSTICE WAITE delivered the opinion of the Court.
