U.S. Supreme Court
Relfe v. Rundle, 103 U.S. 222 (1881)
Relfe v. Rundle
103 U.S. 222
A final decree of the proper court dissolved an insolvent life insurance company of Missouri and, as provided by the statutes in force, vested, for the use and benefit of creditors and policyholders, its entire property in A., a citizen of that state and superintendent of her insurance department.
1. That the statutes, being in force when the charter of the company was granted, are in legal effect a part thereof.
2. That a suit having been previously instituted in a court of Louisiana by citizens of the latter state against the company, A. was, on being admitted a party thereto, entitled by reason of his citizenship to remove it to the circuit court of the United states.
The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
