Maryland & Va. Churches v. Sharpsburg Church, 396 U.S. 367 (1970)

Maryland and Virginia Eldership of Churches of God v.

Church of God at Sharpsburg, Inc.

No. 414

Decided January 19, 1970

396 U.S. 367


Since state court's resolution of property dispute between church bodies was made on basis of state law that did not involve inquiry into religious doctrine, the appeal involves no substantial federal question.

254 Md. 162, 254 A.2d 162, appeal dismissed.
