U.S. Supreme Court
Stuart v. Easton, 156 U.S. 46 (1895)
Stuart v. Easton
Argued January 15, 1895
Decided January 21, 1895
156 U.S. 46
An averment that the plaintiff is "a citizen of London, England," is not sufficient to give the circuit court jurisdiction on the ground of his alienage, the defendant being a citizen, and on the question being raised in this Court, the case may be remanded with leave to apply to the circuit court for amendment and for further proceedings.
The case is stated in the opinion.
