U.S. Supreme Court

Williams v. Hagood, 98 U.S. 72 (1878)

Williams v. Hagood

98 U.S. 72

Syllabus

Where a bill shows no equity in the complainant and contains no averment that he has been injured by certain statutes of a state, this Court will not pass upon an abstract question the object of which is plainly to obtain a decision touching their constitutionality, but will dismiss the bill without prejudice.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
