Church v. Kelsey, 121 U.S. 282 (1887)

Church v. Kelsey

Submitted March 28, 1887

Decided April 18, 1887

121 U.S. 282


The Constitution of the United States does not prevent a state from giving to its courts of equity power to hear and determine a suit brought by the holder of an equitable interest in land to establish his rights against the holder of the legal title.

A state constitution is not a contract within the meaning of that clause of the Constitution of the United states which prohibits the states from passing laws impairing the obligation of contracts.

This was a motion to dismiss, to which was united a motion to affirm. The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
