Wolfe v. Hartford Life and Annuity Insurance Company

No. 182

Submitted March 23, 1893

Decided March 27, 1893

148 U.S. 389

Syllabus

A complaint which avers that the plaintiff was, at the several times named therein, "and ever since has been and still is a resident of the city, county and State of New York" is not sufficient to give the circuit court of that circuit jurisdiction on the ground of citizenship of the parties, when the record nowhere discloses the plaintiffs citizenship.
