Coney v. Winchell

Submitted December 16, 1885

Decided January 4, 1886

116 U.S. 227

Syllabus

In a suit in Connecticut for a strict foreclosure of a mortgage of real estate brought against a grantee of the mortgagor, if the mortgagee seeks to charge the mortgagor with any insufficiency in the appraised value of the land to pay the mortgage debt, the latter is a necessary party to the suit so as to prevent a removal of it to a federal court by his grantee, if he and the mortgagee are citizens of the same state.

This was an appeal from an order remanding a case to a state court. The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
