U.S. Supreme Court

Smith v. Jennings, 206 U.S. 276 (1907)

Smith v. Jennings

No. 104

Argued April 24, 25, 1907

Decided May 13, 1907

206 U.S. 276


Whether the proceeding in the enactment of a state statute conform with the state constitution is to be determined by the state court, and it judgment is final.

A state statute directing the state treasurer to write certain bonds off the books in his office and no longer to carry them as a debt of the state does not impair any existing obligation of the state to pay the bond nor affect the remedy to recover upon them, and where the state court has so construed the act, in refusing to enjoin the treasurer from making the entries required thereby at the suit of one claiming to own the bonds, no federal right of the plaintiff is denied, obstructed, impaired or affected, and the writ of error will be dismissed.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
