U.S. Supreme Court
Marrow v. Brinkley, 129 U.S. 178 (1889)
Marrow v. Brinkley
Submitted January 7, 1889
Decided January 21, 1889
129 U.S. 178
It being plain that the decision in the court below, adverse to the plaintiffs in error, was made upon the principles of laches and estoppel, and that there was no decision against a right, title, privilege or immunity, claimed under the Constitution or any statute of or authority exercised under the United States, no federal question is involved, and this Court is without jurisdiction.
If the highest court of a state, proceeding upon the principles of general law only, errs in the rendition of a judgment or decree affecting property, this does not deprive the party to the suit of his property without due process of law.
Motion to dismiss. The case is stated in the opinion.
