U.S. Supreme Court

Wall v. Chesapeake & Ohio Ry. Co., 256 U.S. 125 (1921)

Wall v. Chesapeake & Ohio Railway Company

No. 237

Argued March 21, 1921

Decided April 11, 1921

256 U.S. 125

ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT

OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS

Syllabus

A federal question which could have been raised before but was first raised in the state supreme court by a petition for rehearing, which that court merely overruled, does not confer jurisdiction on this court.

Writ of error to review 290 Ill. 227 dismissed.

The case is stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary

Page 256 U. S. 126

MR. JUSTICE McREYNOLDS delivered the opinion of the Court.

An Illinois statute of 1903 amended the Act of 1853 which gave a right of action for wrongful death by adding thereto: "Provided further, that no action shall be brought or prosecuted in this state to recover damages for death occurring outside of this state." Our jurisdiction is invoked upon the theory that validity of the amending act was challenged below because of conflict with the federal Constitution. But the point was not raised prior to the petition to the Supreme Court for a rehearing which was overruled without more. 290 Ill. 227. It could have been presented earlier. According to the well established rule, we may not now consider it, and the writ of error must be dismissed. Godchaux Co. v. Estopinal, 251 U. S. 179.

Dismissed.
