McCormick v. Oklahoma City, 236 U.S. 657 (1915)

McCormick v. Oklahoma City

No. 170

Argued March 4, 1915

Decided March 15, 1915

236 U.S. 657

Syllabus

Where the bill presents a case of diversity of citizenship only, the decree of the circuit court of appeals is final. An appeal to this Court must be dismissed.

An allegation in a pleading that, by reason of contracts with a municipality, plaintiff had a vested right of property in such contracts or in their performance, and that a refusal to perform amounts to deprivation of such property, does not give the allegation any other character than that of one alleging ordinary breach of contract.

A constitutional question cannot be imported into the case in that manner.

Appeal from 203 F. 921 dismissed.

The facts, which involve the jurisdiction of this Court to review judgments of the circuit court of appeals, are stated in the opinion.
