U.S. Supreme Court
Remington Paper Co. v. Watson, 173 U.S. 443 (1899)
Remington Paper Co. v. Watson
Argued January 17-18, 1899
Decided March 13, 1899
173 U.S. 443
On the facts stated in the opinion, the Court holds that the plaintiff in error, a New York corporation, having, of its own motion, sought to litigate its rights to a state court of Louisiana and having been given the opportunity to do so, no federal question arises out of the fact that the litigation then resulted unsuccessfully and without the decision of a federal question which might give this court jurisdiction, following Eustis v. Bolles, 150 U. S. 370, in holding that when a state court has based its decision on a local or state question, the logical course here is to dismiss the writ of error.
The case is stated in the opinion.
