U.S. Supreme Court
Jett Bros. Distilling Co. v. Carrollton, 252 U.S. 1 (1920)
Jett Bros. Distilling Company v. City of Carrollton
Argued December 19, 1919
Decided March 1, 1920
252 U.S. 1
An objection that a tax is void under the Fourteenth Amendment because of systematic discrimination by officials in making assessments, but which does not draw in question before the state court the validity of the statute or authority under which they acted, will not support a writ of error from this Court under Jud.Code, § 237, as amended. P. 252 U. S. 5.
A petition for rehearing merely overruled by the state court without opinion is not a basis for a writ of error. P. 252 U. S. 6.
Writ of error to review 178 Ky. 561 dismissed.
The case is stated in the opinion.
