U.S. Supreme Court

Porto Rico Ry., Light & Power Co. v. Mor, 253 U.S. 345 (1920)

Porto Rico Railway, Light & Power Company v. Mor

No. 728

Argued April 23, 1920

Decided June 1, 1920

253 U.S. 345


In the provision of the Act of March 2, 1917, c. 145, 39 Stat. 965, which gives the United States District Court for Porto Rico jurisdiction

"where all the parties on either side of the controversy are citizens or subjects of a foreign state or states, or citizens of a state, territory, or district of the United States not domiciled in Porto Rico,"

etc., the clause "not domiciled in Porto Rico" relates to both preceding clauses, so that jurisdiction is not conferred over an action by an alien domiciled in Porto Rico against a local corporation. P. 253 U. S. 346.

When several words are followed by a clause which is applicable as much to the first and other words as to the last, the clause should be read as applicable to all. P. 253 U. S. 348.

The case is stated in the opinion.
