Chapin v. Fye, 179 U.S. 127 (1900)
Chapin v. Fye
Submitted October 29, 1900
Decided November 19, 1900
179 U.S. 127
An assignment of error in this Court that the decision of a state supreme court was inconsistent with certain paragraphs of an alleged brief putting forward a federal question does not amount to a compliance with the requirements of § 709 of the Revised Statutes.
Where a federal question is raised in the state courts, the party who brings the case to this Court cannot raise here another federal question, which was not raised below.
Motion to dismiss or affirm. The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
