U.S. Supreme Court

Seattle, Renton & Southern Ry. Co. v. Linhoff, 231 U.S. 568 (1913)

Seattle, Renton & Southern Railway Company v. Linhoff

No. 107

Argued December 9, 1913

Decided December 22, 1913

231 U.S. 568

Syllabus

This Court does not sit to revise the construction of documents by the state courts, even if alleged to be contracts within the protection of the federal Constitution. Fisher v. New Orleans, 218 U. S. 438. It takes more than a misconstruction by the state court to make a case under the Fourteenth Amendment.

The state court, and not this Court, is the judge of its own jurisdiction. This Court will not hold that the state court had no jurisdiction to determine rights under an ordinance because it had been superseded by a later ordinance when the latter does not appear in the record chanroblesvirtualawlibrary

and the highest court of the state has held in another case that it doe not affect the case at issue.

Writ of error to renew 62 Wash. 544 dismissed.

The facts, which involve the jurisdiction of this Court to review judgments of the state courts, are stated in the opinion.
