Morgan v. Curtenius - 61 U.S. 1 (1857)
U.S. Supreme Court
Morgan v. Curtenius, 61 U.S. 20 How. 1 1 (1857)
Morgan v. Curtenius
1 U.S. (20 How.) 1
ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED
STATES FOR THE DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
Where the circuit court adopted the construction of a state statute which was placed upon it by the supreme court of the state, the decision was correct, and a different construction of the statute subsequently placed upon it by the supreme court of the state will not authorize this Court to reverse the judgment of the circuit court as having been erroneously given.
The case was the same case which was before the Court at the preceding term, as noticed in 60 U. S. 19 How. 8.
The case is stated in the opinion of the court.
