No. 208

Argued April 5, 1888

Decided April 30, 1888

127 U.S. 322

APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE

Syllabus

A petition by defendant for removal of a cause from a state court on the ground of citizenship which alleges that he is a citizen of another named which none of the complainants are citizens, is insufficient unless the record discloses that they are citizens of other named states of which the defendant is not a citizen, or are aliens.

This Court of its own motion uniformly takes the objection of want of jurisdiction in the circuit court, especially as regards citizenship.
