Chappell Chem. & Fert. Co. v. Sulphur Mines Co. - 172 U.S. 474 (1899)
U.S. Supreme Court
Chappell Chem. & Fert. Co. v. Sulphur Mines Co. , 172 U.S. 474 (1899)
Chappell Chemical and Fertilizer Company
v. Sulphur Mines Company (No. 3)
Argued December 16, 1898
Decided January 9, 1899
172 U.S. 474
The claim made in the court below that the provision in the Constitution of Maryland which abridged the right of trial by jury in the courts of the City of Baltimore, without making a similar provision for the counties of the state denied to litigants of the city the equal protection of the laws, is not tenable.
The record does not contain the petition for the removal of this case from the state court to the Circuit Court of the United States, nor disclose the grounds on which it was founded, and this Court does not pass upon the question whether the state court lost jurisdiction by reason of it.
This cause was argued with Nos. 91 and 92, preceding it. The case is stated in the opinion.
