Davis v. Texas, 139 U.S. 651 (1891)
Davis v. Texas
Submitted March 30, 1891
Decided April 13, 1891
139 U.S. 651
ERROR TO THE COURT OF APPEALS
OF THE STATE OF TEXAS
A writ of error to review the judgment of the highest tribunal of a state cannot be maintained in the absence of a federal question giving this Court jurisdiction.
The questions sought to be presented in this case as federal questions fall entirely within the scope of the exercise of the powers of the state, and this Court has no jurisdiction over them.
