Mario Mercado e Hijos v. Commins, 322 U.S. 465 (1944)
Mario Mercado e Hijos v. Commins
Argued April 24, 1944
Decided May 29, 1944
322 U.S. 465
Although the duty of the Circuit Court of Appeals and of this Court to examine and appraise local law in cases brought for review from the insular courts cannot ordinarily be discharged summarily, full argument in this case has not developed any issue of Puerto Rican law, or any question of the deference rightly to be paid to the decisions of the highest court of Puerto Rico, so substantial as to preclude the summary judgment of affirmance entered by the Circuit Court of Appeals. P. 322 U. S. 471.
Certiorari, 321 U.S. 758, to review the affirmance of a judgment of the Supreme Court of Puerto Rico.
