Reddall v. Bryan - 65 U.S. 420 (1860)
U.S. Supreme Court
Reddall v. Bryan, 65 U.S. 24 Wall. 420 420 (1860)
Reddall v. Bryan
65 U.S. (24 Wall.) 420
Where a decree of the Court of Appeals of Maryland affirmed the decree of the court below and remanded the case to that court, this is not such a final decree as will give jurisdiction over the case to this Court.
The decree of the court below was merely an interlocutory order, and although state laws allow an appeal to state courts from such an order, this cannot enlarge the jurisdiction of this Court given by act of Congress.
Moreover, the judgment of the state court was in favor of the authority set up
under the laws of the United States, and therefore no appeal lies to this Court under the 25th section of the Judiciary Act.
The case is stated in the opinion of the Court, and is reported in 14 Md. 470-471.
