U.S. Supreme Court

Erie R. Co. v. Solomon, 237 U.S. 427 (1915)

Erie Railroad Company v. Solomon

No. 559

Argued February 24, 1916

Decided My 10, 1915

237 U.S. 427


Writ of error to review the judgment of state court, in an action for personal injuries based on the Safety Appliance Law of the state substantially identical with the federal law, and affirmed by the intermediate appellate and the highest court of the state without opinion, dismissed for want of jurisdiction under § 237, Judicial Code. Even if the highest court of the state, after affirmance, certified a part of the record, the fact that it had been necessary to consider the Federal Safety Appliance Act and to determine whether the Ohio Safety Appliance Act, as construed by the trial court, is not repugnant to the Fourteenth Amendment, the federal questions suggested as the basis for the writ of error in this case are so frivolous a not to afford jurisdiction under § 237, Judicial Code.

The facts, which involve the construction and application of the Safety Appliance Act and the jurisdiction of this Court under § 237, Judicial Code, are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
