U.S. Supreme Court

Clark v. Kansas City, 172 U.S. 334 (1899)

Clark v. Kansas City

No. 492

Argued December 18, 1898

Decided January 8. 1899

172 U.S. 334

Syllabus

As the laws of Kansas permit an amendment of the plaintiffs' pleadings in the court below after the overruling by the supreme court of a demurrer to them, and as the supreme court of the state, in deciding this case, did not take that right away, it follows that the judgment of the state court was not final, and that this case must be dismissed for want of jurisdiction.

The case is stated in the opinion.
