Decided December 9, 1918
248 U.S. 115
A motion to file an original bill will be denied when the complaining state is clearly not entitled to the relief ought. P. 248 U. S. 120.
Where the only effective relief sought is to enjoin the administration by the court of another state of personal property (in this case, note and bonds) located there at the time of the owner's death, relief must clearly be denied because, even though the property may have been fraudulently placed there to avoid taxation in the complainant state, which is alleged to be the domicile of the owner, the the actual situs had the right to administer the property. Id.
Motion for leave to file bill of complaint denied.
The case is stated in the opinion.
