Cameron v. Hodges, 127 U.S. 322 (1888)
Cameron v. Hodges
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
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.
