U.S. Supreme Court

Nadal v. May, 233 U.S. 447 (1914)

Nadal v. May

No. 130

Submitted December 12, 1913

Restored to docket for reargument January 26, 1914

Reargued April 6, 7, 1914

Decided April 20, 1914

233 U.S. 447


The Civil Code of Porto Rico of March 1, 1902, did not go into effect until July 1, 1902, Ortea v. Lara, 202 U. S. 339, and prior thereto the wife's assent to a conveyance by her husband was not necessary. Decisions of this Court and of the local courts as to the date when a code of law making material changes in the prior existing law went into effect may well become a rule of property which should not be disturbed by subsequent conflicting decisions.

This Court, as a general rule, is unwilling to overrule local tribunals upon matters of purely local concern. Santa Fe Central Ry. v. Friday, 232 U. S. 694.

5 P.R.F. 582 affirmed.

The facts, which involve the validity of title to land in Porto Rico and determination of the date when the Civil Code of 1902 went into effect, are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
