Decided April 15, 1889
130 U.S. 482
APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED
STATES FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
An appeal prayed and granted in a circuit court "of this cause to the Supreme Court" brings the whole case here, including orders previously made in it.
A party to a decree in a state court in a matter subject to its jurisdiction
cannot attack it collaterally in a suit commenced in a circuit court of the United States after the jurisdiction of the state court had attached. It is immaterial whether the receiver's certificates which are in controversy in this suit were properly issued to the appellee, for the reason that: (1) it is apparent that the order of the state court under which they were issued was the result of an agreement between the parties to this suit, and (2) if they should be held to be invalid, the appellee could not be restored to the rights under the decree of the state court which he surrendered for them.
