Aetna Life Insurance Company v. Tremblay
Argued January 26, 1912
Decided February 19, 1912
223 U.S. 185
The full faith and credit clause of the Constitution does not extend to judgments of foreign states or nations, and unless there is a treaty relative thereto, this Court has no jurisdiction under § 709, Rev.Stat., to review a judgment of a state court on the ground that it failed to give full faith and credit to a judgment of a court of a foreign country.
The facts are stated in the opinion.
