Crump v. Thurber, 115 U.S. 56 (1885)
Crump v. Thurber
Submitted April 22, 1885
Decided May 4, 1885
115 U.S. 56
A suit in equity brought by C, a citizen of one state, against a corporation of the same state, and T, a citizen of another state, and W, to obtain a decree that C owns shares of the stock of the corporation, standing in the name of W, but sold by him to T, and that the corporation cancel on its books the shares standing in the name of W, and issue to C certificates therefor, cannot be removed by T into the circuit court of the United States, under § 2 of the Act of March 3, 1875, 18 St. 470, because the corporation is an indispensable party to the suit, and is a citizen of the same state with C.
The only question involved in this appeal was the rightfulness of the removal of the cause from a state court to a circuit court of the United States. The facts which raise the question are stated in the opinion of the Court.
