Sloane v. Anderson, 117 U.S. 275 (1886)

Sloane v. Anderson

Submitted March 1, 1886

Decided March 15, 1886

117 U.S. 275


The filing of separate answers by several defendants, sued jointly in a state court, on an alleged joint cause of action in tort, in which each avers that he acted separately on his own account and not jointly in the acts complained of, does not divide the suit into separate controversies so as to make it removable into the Circuit Court of the United States.

Pirie v. Tvedt, 115 U. S. 41, affirmed and applied.

This writ of error was sued out to review the action of the circuit court in remanding the cause to the state court, from whence it had been removed. The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
