ERROR TO THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
FOR THE DISTRICT OF MASSACHUSETTS
Decided upon the authority of Burrill v. Locomobile Co., ante, 258 U. S. 34.
MR. JUSTICE HOLMES delivered the opinion of the Court.
This is a suit like the two just decided, ante, 258 U. S. 34, to recover taxes paid under the Act of 1909 there mentioned and St.1918, c. 253. In this case, as in the other, the statutes provided a remedy that excluded an action against the Treasurer at common law. St.1909, c. 490, Pt. III, § 70; St.1918, c. 253, § 4; St.1918, c. 255, § 7. The district court gave judgment for the defendant on the merits. Without going into them, it follows that the judgment must be affirmed.
MR. JUSTICE Pitney, being absent, took no part in the decision.
