Wood v. Davis

59 U.S. (18 How.) 467

Where a bill in chancery was filed in a state court by a citizen of that state against parties some of whom resided in that state and some in another state, and the latter removed the cause into the circuit court of the United States and that court, after

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
