U.S. Supreme CourtWolfe v. Hartford Life & Annuity Ins. Co., 148 U.S. 389 (1893)
Wolfe v. Hartford Life and Annuity Insurance Company
Submitted March 23, 1893
Decided March 27, 1893
148 U.S. 389
A complaint which avers that the plaintiff was, at the several times named therein, "and ever since has been and still is a resident of the city, county and State of New York" is not sufficient to give the circuit court of that circuit jurisdiction on the ground of citizenship of the parties, when the record nowhere discloses the plaintiffs citizenship.
The case is stated in the opinion.
