Texas Transportation Co. v. Seeligson
Submitted April 25, 1887
Decided May 27, 1887
122 U.S. 519
If a cause pending in a state court against several defendants is removed thence to the circuit court of the United States on the petition of one of the defendants under the act of 1870, 18 Stat. 470, on the grounds of a separate cause of action against the petitioning defendant in which the controversy was wholly between citizens of different states, it should be remanded to the state court if the action is discontinued in the circuit court as to the petitioning defendant.
This was an appeal from an order remanding a cause to the state court from whence it had been removed. The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
