Young v. Bryan

19 U.S. (6 Wheat.) 146

ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT

COURT OF TENNESSEE

Syllabus

The circuit court has jurisdiction of a suit brought by the endorsee of a promissory note who is a citizen of one state against the endorser, who is a citizen of a different state, whether a suit could be brought in that court by the endorsee against the maker or not.

No protest of a promissory note or inland bill of exchange is necessary.

This was an action of assumpsit brought in the court below by the defendants in error, citizens of Pennsylvania, against the plaintiff in error, a citizen chanroblesvirtualawlibrary

of Tennessee, as the endorser of a promissory note drawn by another citizen of Tennessee, and endorsed to the plaintiff. The only questions in the cause were

MR. CHIEF JUSTICE MARSHALL delivered the opinion of the Court that a suit may be brought in the circuit court by the endorsee against the endorser, whether a suit could be there brought against the drawer or not.

entered into by the endorser and endorsee, upon which the suit is brought, and if the endorsee is a citizen of a different state, he may bring an action against the endorser in the circuit court. As to the other objection insisted upon by the plaintiff in error, all that was incumbent upon the holder was to give due notice to the endorser. No protest of a promissory note or inland bill of exchange is necessary.

Judgment affirmed.
