U.S. Supreme Court

Rosenberg Bros. & Co., Inc. v. Curtis Brown Co., 260 U.S. 516 (1923)

Rosenberg Bros. & Company, Inc. v. Curtis Brown Company

No. 102

Argued November 16, 1922

Decided January 2, 1923

260 U.S. 516

Syllabus

1. An order of the district court quashing the summons in an action against a foreign corporation upon the ground that the defendant was not found in the state is in effect a final judgment, reviewable here under Jud.Code, § 238. P. 517.

2. Purchases of goods by a foreign corporation for sale at its domicile, and visits by its officers on business related to such purchases, are not enough to warrant the inference that it is present within the jurisdiction of the state where such purchases and visits are made, and service of summons on its president while temporarily in that state on such business is therefore void. P. 260 U. S. 517.

3. The fact that the cause of action arose in the state will not confer jurisdiction of a foreign corporation not found there. P. 260 U. S. 518.

285 F. 879 affirmed,

Error to a judgment of the district court quashing the summons, for want of jurisdiction, in an action against a foreign corporation.
