Clarke v. McDade, 165 U.S. 168 (1897)

Clarke v. McDade

No. 158

Submitted January 13, 1897

Decided January 25, 1897

165 U.S. 168


A general statement that the decision of a state court is against the constitutional rights of the objecting party, or against the Fourteenth Amendment, or that it is without due process of law, particularly when these objections appear only in specifications of error, so called, will not raise a federal question, even where the judgment is a final one within Rev.Stat. § 709.

In these cases there was no final judgment, such as is provided for in Rev.Stat. § 709, and there does not appear to have arisen any federal question whatever.
