ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT

OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA

Syllabus

This Court has no jurisdiction to review a judgment of the highest court of a state unless a federal question has been, either in express terms or by necessary effect, decided by that court against the plaintiff in error.

The original action was ejectment, brought in the Superior Court of San Francisco by the City and County of San Francisco to recover a tract of land in San Francisco of which the plaintiff alleged that it was seized in fee, and entitled to the possession, in trust for the use of the State of California and of the people of the city and county as a public plaza, park, common or square, and commonly known as Hamilton Square or Plaza.
