Blake v. McKim
103 U.S. 336
A., a citizen of Massachusetts, commenced a suit in a court of that state against the executors of B., two of whom were citizens of Massachusetts and one a citizen of New York to enforce a liability of the testator. The executors appeared and filed a joint answer. Held that the controversy, not being divisible nor wholly between citizens of different states, could not be removed into the circuit court of the United states.
