Haley v. Breeze, 144 U.S. 130 (1892)
Haley v. Breeze
Submitted March 15, 1892
Decided March 21, 1892
144 U.S. 130
ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT
OF THE STATE OF COLORADO
This writ of error is dismissed because the record presents no federal question properly raised, and because the judgment of the state court rests upon an independent ground, broad enough to maintain it, and involving no federal question.
The plaintiff in error, as plaintiff below, filed a bill in a district court in a county in Colorado to restrain the collection of taxes which had been assessed against him. An injunction being refused, he filed a second bill, in another court in another county, seeking the same remedy. An injunction being issued there, the cause was taken to the supreme court of the state, where the decree was reversed and the injunction dissolved. The following extracts from the opinion of the court, found in the record, show the grounds upon which that decree, to which this writ of error was sued out, rested.
