U.S. Supreme Court

Arndt v. Griggs, 134 U.S. 316 (1890)

Arndt v. Griggs

No. 1150

Submitted January 10, 1890

Decided March 17, 1890

134 U.S. 316


A state may provide by statute that the title to real estate within its limits shall be settled and determined by a suit in which the defendant, being a nonresident, is brought into court by publication.

The well settled rules that an action to quiet title is a suit in equity; that equity acts upon the person, and that the person is not brought into court by service by publication alone do not apply when a state has provided by statute for the adjudication of titles to real estate within its limits as against nonresidents, who are brought into court only by publication.

Hart v. Sansom, 110 U. S. 151, explained.

This was an action to recover possession of land and to quiet title. Judgment for the plaintiff. Defendant sued out this writ of error. The case is stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
