Syllabus

As a basis of jurisdiction of the circuit court, it is not enough that recovery might be sought upon a constitutional ground; it must clearly appear that it is actually so sought.

Where diverse citizenship exists and the complainant plants its right to relief on the doctrine of estoppel, the case is not one arising under the Constitution of the United States, even though recovery might have been sought on the ground of impairment of the contract, and the judgment of the circuit court of appeals is final.

Appeal from 179 F.4d 5 dismissed.

The facts, which involve the jurisdiction of this Court of appeals from the circuit court of appeals under the Judiciary Act of 1891, are stated in the opinion.
