Decided March 18, 1895
157 U.S. 195
A guardian of an infant appointed in one state cannot maintain a suit in the circuit court of the United States held within another state, to set aside the appointment or to compel an account of a guardian previously appointed in the latter state, except so far as authorized to do so by its laws.
In a suit by an infant, by his next friend, the infant, and not the next friend, must be made the plaintiff.
The case is stated in the opinion.
