Syllabus

1. Unless a federal right is involved, a state court's application of the local laws will not be renewed here. P. 262 U. S. 354.

2. Where a property owner, complaining of a special sidewalk assessment, had full opportunity, under the state laws, to be heard before the assessment was made, and a reasonable time thereafter to bring suit to set it aside, or to correct it or any proceeding with reference to it, but failed to avail himself of these rights, and did not draw in question the validity of the state laws, held that a contention that he was denied due process of law was not even colorable. Id.

Writ of error dismissed.
