Remington Paper Co. v. Watson

No. 146

Argued January 17-18, 1899

Decided March 13, 1899

173 U.S. 443

Syllabus

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.
