U.S. Supreme Court

O'Conor v. Texas, 202 U.S. 501 (1906)

O'Conor v. Texas

No. 236

Argued April 19, 1906

Decided May 28, 1906

202 U.S. 501


As subsection 1 of § 63, Rev.Stat., was repealed by the Act of March 3, 1875, 18 Stat. 470, and as the purpose of the Act of March 3, 1887, 24 Stat. 556, as corrected by the Act of August 13, 1888, 25 Stat. 433, was to limit the jurisdiction of the circuit courts, a petition for removal of an action brought by a state in its own courts against an alien was properly denied.

In an action to recover real estate, part of a grant from a former sovereign, defenses based on adverse possession, estoppel, construction of state statutes, and the effect of judgments of the state court in other actions, neither the validity nor the construction of any treaty of the United States or the validity of the grant being challenged, do not present federal questions which give this Court jurisdiction to review the judgment on writ of error.

The facts are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
