Mitchell v. Lenox

39 U.S. (14 Pet.) 49


The Fourth Article of the Constitution of the United States, which declares that "Full faith and credit shall be given in each state to the public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state," cannot, by any just construction of its words, be held to embrace an alleged error in a decree of a state court asserted to be in collision with a prior decision of the same court in the same case.
