McCoy v. Shaw

Nos. 42, 473

Submitted April 13, 1928

Decided May 21, 1928

277 U.S. 302

Syllabus

A suit to enjoin collection of a tax as violative of treaties between the United States and the Chickasaw Indians and of certain Acts of Congress was dismissed by the state court upon the ground that there was a plain, adequate, and exclusive remedy at law by paying the tax under protest and suing for its recovery. Held that this Court had no jurisdiction to review, as the judgment was put upon an independent, non-federal ground adequate to sustain it. P. 277 U. S. 303.

Certiorari to 124 Okla. 256 dismissed.
