Cissna v. Tennessee
Argued November 10, 1916
Reargument ordered December 11, 1916
242 U.S. 195
The jurisdiction of this Court being here challenged, and it appearing that the facts presented are identical with those on which depends a suit over boundary, brought by the State of Arkansas against the State of Tennessee (defendant in error herein) while this case was pending in the courts of the latter state, that a decision of this case upon the merits will be equivalent to a decision of the boundary controversy, and that an affirmance of the judgment will dispose of the avails of nearly or quite all the lands involved in that case and this, ordered, that this case be restored to the docket and be assigned
for hearing immediately after the boundary case, and that, upon a stipulation of the facts of that case by the parties thereto, both cases will be taken on briefs if all parties consent, or advanced for early argument if they prefer.
The facts are stated in the opinion.
