U.S. Supreme Court

Leather Manufacturers' Bank v. Cooper, 120 U.S. 778 (1887)

Leather Manufacturers' Bank v. Cooper

Submitted March 7, 1887

Decided March 21, 1887

120 U.S. 778

Syllabus

Since the Act of July 12, 1852, c. 290, took effect, a suit by or against National Banks cannot be removed from a state court to a circuit court of the United States unless a similar suit by or against a state bank in like situation with the National Bank could be so removed.

A case does not arise under the laws of the United States simply because this Court has decided in another suit the questions of law which are involved.

A case is not removable because a colorable assignment has been made to give a state court exclusive jurisdiction. Provident Savings Society v. Ford, 114 U. S. 635, and Oakley v. Goodnow, 118 U. S. 43, on this point affirmed.

This writ of error was sued out to review an order of the circuit court remanding the cause to the state court from which it had been removed. chanrobles.com-red
