Knouse v. Martin, 55 U.S. 14 How. 23 23 (1852)

Knouse v. Martin

55 U.S. (14 How.) 23


Where a motion was made under the 12th section of the Judiciary Act, to remove a cause from a state court to the circuit court of the United States, notwithstanding which the state court retained cognizance of the case, and it was ultimately brought to this Court under the 25th section of the Judiciary Act, a motion to dismiss it for want of jurisdiction cannot be sustained. The question will remain to be decided upon the full hearing of the case.

A Motion was made by Mr. Martin to dismiss this case, which was argued by himself and Mr. Garr.

The circumstances upon which the motion was based, are stated in the opinion of the Court.
