Fisher v. New Orleans, 218 U.S. 438 (1910)

Fisher v. New Orleans

No. 43

Argued November 9, 10, 1910

Decided November 28, 1910

218 U.S. 438


The jurisdiction of this Court, under the contract clause of the federal Constitution, extends to doing away with the interference of a later law impairing the contract, but not to remedying erroneous construction of the original contract or to seeing that it is carried out according to the interpretation of this Court, apart from it.

There is nothing in this case that takes it out of the general rule above stated.

Whether or not delay constitutes laches is for the state court to decide.
