Montalet v. Murray
8 U.S. (4 Cranch) 46
ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT
OF THE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
If it does not appear upon the record that the character of the original parties will support the jurisdiction of the court, it cannot be sustained.
A suit on a promissory note cannot be maintained in the courts of the United States in the hands of a subsequent holder if the original parties to the note could not sue or be sued in those courts.
