ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT

OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA

Syllabus

In this case, which was a writ of error to the supreme court of a state, it was contended that that court did not give to a judgment of a circuit court of the United States such faith and credit as it was entitled to under the Constitution and laws of the United States, and that it disregarded the provision of the Constitution of the United States that no state shall pass any law impairing the obligation of a contract. Held that the first contention was incorrect; that the question as to the impairment of the obligation of a contract was raised for the first time in this Court and was not accurate in fact, and that the writ of error must be dismissed.

By an Act of the Legislature of the State of Minnesota approved March 5, 1877, General Laws of Minnesota, 1877, c. 106, it was enacted by sections 4, 5, 6, and 7 thereof, as is printed in the margin. *
