Baltimore Traction Co. v. Baltimore Belt R. Co., 151 U.S. 137 (1894)

Baltimore Traction Company v.

Baltimore Belt Railroad Company

No. 994

Submitted December 11, 1893

Decided January 8, 1894

151 U.S. 137

Syllabus

A public act of the State of Maryland providing for the condemnation of land for the use of a railroad company was held by the Court of Appeals of that state to require notice to the owner of the land proposed to be condemned, when properly construed. Held that this Court had no jurisdiction over a writ of error to a court of that state when the only error alleged was the want of such notice, which, it was charged, invalidated the proceedings as repugnant to the Constitution of the United States.
