Grand Gulf Railroad & Banking Cop. v. Marshall

53 U.S. (12 How.) 165


In order to bring a case within the reviewing power of this Court, as prescribed by the 25th Section of the Judiciary Act, it is necessary that the record should show that the point giving jurisdiction to this Court was raised and decided in the state court.

The preceding decisions upon this subject referred to.

Hence, where it appears from the record that the decision of the state court turned upon the construction, and not the validity, of a state law, and that the question of its validity was not raised, this Court has no jurisdiction.

The facts are set forth in the opinion of the court, to which the reader is referred.
