U.S. Supreme Court

Detroit v. Parker, 181 U.S. 399 (1901)

Detroit v. Parker

No. 411

Argued February 26, 1901

Decided April 29, 1901

181 U.S. 399


Cass Farm Co. v. Detroit, ante, 181 U. S. 396, followed in holding that it was not the intention of the Fourteenth Amendment to subvert the systems of the states pertaining to general and special taxation; that that amendment legitimately operates to extend to the citizens and residents of the states the same protection against arbitrary state legislation affecting life, liberty and property as is afforded by the Fifth Amendment against similar legislation by Congress, and federal courts ought not to interfere when what is complained of is the enforcement of the settled laws of the state, applicable to all persons in like circumstances and conditions, but only when there is some abuse of law, amounting to confiscation of property, or deprivation of personal rights, as was instanced in the case of Norwood v. Baker, 172 U. S. 269.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
