Fauntleroy v. Lum, 210 U.S. 230 (1908)

Fauntleroy v. Lum

No. 215

Argued April 27, 28, 1908

Decided May 18, 1908

210 U.S. 230


A judgment is conclusive as to all the media concludendi, and it cannot be impeached either in or out of the state by showing that it was based on a mistake of law.

A judgment of a court of a state in which the cause of action did not arise, but based on an award of arbitration had in the state in which the cause did arise, is conclusive, and, under the full faith and credit clause of the federal Constitution, must be given effect in the latter state, notwithstanding the award was for a claim which could not, under the laws of that state, have been enforced in any of its courts.

80 Miss. 757 reversed.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
