U.S. Supreme Court
Hill v. Chicago and Evanston R. Co., 140 U.S. 52 (1891)
Hill v. Chicago and Evanston Railroad Company
Argued March 24, 1891
Decided April 20, 1891
140 U.S. 52
APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED
STATES FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
The decree of June 8, 1885, dismissing the bill in this case as to certain parties for want of equity and denying relief to complainant "upon all matters and things in controversy," which was before this Court in Hill v. Chicago and Evanston Railroad, 129 U. S. 170, was a final decree as to all matters determined by it, and its finality is not affected by the fact that there was left to be determined by the master a further severable matter in which the appellant parties had no interest.
In equity. The case is stated in the opinion.
