U.S. Supreme Court

Work v. United Globe Mines, 231 U.S. 595 (1914)

Work v. United Globe Mines

No. 6

Argued November 6, 1913

Decided January 5, 1914

231 U.S. 595


The settled rule of this Court is to accept the construction placed by the territorial court upon a local statute, and not to disregard the same unless constrained so to do by clearest conviction of serious error. Phoenix Railway Co. v. Landis, ante, p. 231 U. S. 578.

Where, as in this case, it does not appear that manifest error was committed in the construction and application of the statute of limitation or in determining the sufficiency of a deed to the premises the title to which was involved, this Court will not reverse the judgment of the territorial court.

In refusing to reverse because no manifest error appears, this Court does not intimate any doubt as to the correctness of the ruling, but simply abstains from deciding a purely local question in the absence of conditions rendering it necessary to do so.

12 Ariz. 339 affirmed.

The facts, which involve the validity of a judgment of the Supreme Court of the Territory of Arizona establishing title to property in that Territory, are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
