Quong Ham Wah Co. v. Industrial Acc. Comm'n, 255 U.S. 445 (1921)

Quong Ham Wah Co. v. Industrial Accident Commission of California

No. 38

Argued March 9, 1921

Decided March 21, 1921

255 U.S. 445


1. This Court is without authority to review and revise the construction affixed upon a state statute as to a state matter by the court of last resort of the state. P. 255 U. S. 448.

2. Where the state court, construing a state statute granting a privilege to citizens of the state, decided that, taken with Art. IV, § 2, of the Constitution, it must be applied a granting the same privilege to citizens of other states as well, held that insistence in this Court that the statute violated that provision of the Constitution by confining the privilege to citizens of the state was frivolous, and would not support a writ of error to review the judgment. P. 255 U. S. 449.

Writ of error to review 192 P. 1021 dismissed.

This was a writ of error to review a judgment of the Supreme Court of California affirming an award made by the State Industrial Accident Commission under a Workmen's Compensation Law.
