U.S. Supreme Court

Northern Pacific R. Co. v. Walker, 148 U.S. 391 (1893)

Northern Pacific Railroad Company v. Walker

No. 1124

Argued January 31, February 1, 1893

Decided April 3, 1893

148 U.S. 391


Following Walter v. Northeastern Railroad Company, 147 U. S. 370, it is again held that a circuit court of the United States has no jurisdiction over a bill in equity to enjoin the collection of taxes from a railroad company when distinct assessments, in separate counties, no one of which amounts to $2,000, and for which, in case of payment under protest, separate suits must be brought to recover back the amounts paid, are joined in the bill and make an aggregate of over $2000.

As perhaps by amendment this bill might be retained as to some one of the defendants, this Court declines to dismiss the bill, and reverses the judgment and remands the cause to the court below for further proceedings in conformity with this opinion.

The case is stated in the opinion.
