ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT

OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK

Syllabus

In determining the ground upon which a judgment in a state court was rendered, this Court may refer to the opinion of that court.

When it does not appear upon what ground the highest court of a state placed its judgment, and the judgment may be supported without deciding a federal question, this Court is without jurisdiction of it in error.
