Missouri Pacific R. Co. v. Clarendon Boat Oar Co., Inc., 257 U.S. 533 (1922)
Missouri Pacific Railroad Company v.
Clarendon Boat Oar Company, Inc.
Argued January 20, 1922
Decided February 27, 1922
257 U.S. 533
A state law for securing jurisdiction over foreign corporations in proceedings in the state courts by requiring appointment of agents upon whom process may be served, applicable alike to actions by residents or nonresidents, clearly does not violate due process in not applying to transitory actions arising outside the state; a contention to the contrary made by plaintiff foreign corporation is frivolous, and will not support a writ of error. P. 257 U. S. 534.
Writ of error dismissed.
Error to review a judgment of the Court of Appeals of Louisiana affirming a judgment of a district court of the state and dismissing for want of jurisdiction an action for breach of contract brought by the railroad against the Boat Oar Company.
