U.S. Supreme Court

Stickney v. Kelsey, 209 U.S. 419 (1908)

Stickney v. Kelsey

No. 16

Submitted March 20, 1908

Decided April 6, 1908

209 U.S. 419


A ruling by the highest court of the state sustaining the method of proving the existence of a law of that state presents no federal question.

Where the language of the appellate court is ambiguous, if it may be taken as a declination to pass upon a question not necessary to the decision, this Court will not, in order to aid a technical and nonmeritorious defense, spell out a federal question, but it will resolve the ambiguity against the plaintiff in error who is bound, in order to give this Court jurisdiction, to clearly show that a federal right has been impaired.

Writ of error to review 185 N.Y. 107 dismissed.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
