Paschall v. Christie-Stewart, Inc.
Argued October 16, 1973
Decided November 19, 1973
414 U.S. 100
Where it appears that the running of the limitations period might have been the trial court's independent ground for denying appellants' mineral rights claim, so that any decision of this Court on whether the tax sale notice provisions of state law met federal due process requirements would be advisory and beyond the Court's jurisdiction, the court below should consider whether appellants preserved the right to challenge the trial court's determination that the statute of limitations bars their claim, and whether, under state law, it does so irrespective of the constitutional adequacy of the tax sale notice provisions.
502 P.2d 1265, vacated and remanded.
