Decided February 19, 1923
261 U.S. 114
1. An objection that a state statute violates the federal Constitution, not presented to the state trial court nor to the state supreme court except by a petition for rehearing which was denied without opinion, will not support a writ of error from this Court. P. 261 U. S. 116.
2. The claim that a decision of a state supreme court, by construing an agreement otherwise than it had construed it upon a former interlocutory appeal in the same case, impaired the obligation of the agreement and violated rights under the Fourteenth Amendment will not sustain a writ of error under Jud.Code, § 237, as amended by the Act of 1916. P. 261 U. S. 117.
Writ of error to review 131 N.E. 769 dismissed.
