U.S. Supreme Court

Municipal Securities Corp. v. Kansas City, 246 U.S. 63 (1918)

Municipal Securities Corporation v. Kansas City

No. 56

Argued November 15, 16, 1917

Decided March 4, 1918

246 U.S. 63

Syllabus

If the decision of the state court rests upon a ground of general law adequate to support it, independently of the decision upon alleged violation of federal right, the case is not reviewable here.

So held where the plaintiff, as assignee of special tax bills issued by a city in payment for sewer construction, claimed that, by appropriating a certain lot in the sewer district through condemnation proceedings and by thus preventing the lien of the tax bills from attaching thereto, the city took property without due process, and so rendered itself liable, whereas the state court, construing the sewer contract, the city ordinance and charter and state constitution and laws, held that there could be no recovery against the city on the tax bills themselves, and that the cause of action, if any, for the alleged wrongful taking was a separate matter not covered by the assignment.

Writ of error to review 265 Mo. 252 dismissed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
