U.S. Supreme Court

Leathe v. Thomas, 207 U.S. 93 (1907)

Leathe v. Thomas

No. 21

Argued October 17, 1907

Decided November 11, 1907

207 U.S. 93


In a case coming from a state court, this Court can consider only federal questions decided adversely to the plaintiff in error and upon which a decision was necessary to the decision of the case, and if the judgment complained of is supported also upon other and independent grounds it must be affirmed or the writ of error dismissed.

When the record discloses other and completely adequate grounds on which to support the judgment of a state court, this Court does not commonly inquire whether the decision upon them was correct, or reach a federal question by determining that they ought not to have been held to warrant the result.

Writ of error to review 218 Ill. 246 dismissed.

The facts are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
