ERROR TO THE COURT OF APPEALS
OF THE STATE OF MARYLAND
Domicil generally determines the particular territorial jurisprudence to which the individual is subjected.
Although a judgment in one state against a citizen of another state may be held valid under local laws by the courts of the former, the courts of the latter are not bound to sustain it if it would be invalid but for the special laws of the state where rendered.
