U.S. Supreme Court

Farson, Son & Co. v. Bird, 248 U.S. 268 (1919)

Farson, Son & Co. v. Bird

No. 54

Submitted November 15, 1918

Decided January 7, 1919

248 U.S. 268


Petitioners sought by mandamus to compel a county treasurer to devote the proceed of a special tax toward satisfaction of their county warrants, claiming that their contract rights in the fund were impaired by the action of the county board of revenue in levying the tax for another object, in violation of the constitution. The state court decided the treasurer had no discretion under the state law but to follow the levy, and that petitioner's remedy, if any, was against the board or the county. Held that this Court had no jurisdiction to review the judgment, because it was based on considerations of state law sufficient to sustain it without reference to the federal questions.

Writ of error to review 197 Ala. 384 dismissed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
