Savannah v. Jesup

Decided January 15, 1883

106 U.S. 563

Syllabus

1. Where a foreclosure suit was brought, and the municipal corporation within which the mortgaged property was situate was allowed to intervene and set up a claim for taxes thereon, held that the order of the circuit court rejecting the claim is binding upon the corporation, and the latter is entitled to an appeal where the amount of taxes is sufficient to give this Court jurisdiction.

2. Certain taxes assessed for the years 1877 and 1878, by the City of Savannah upon land situate within its limits, which belongs to the Atlantic and Gulf Railroad Company, held to be unauthorized by law.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
