Cambria Iron Company v. Ashburn

Submitted April 5, 1886

Decided April 19, 1886

118 U.S. 54


United States v. Bowen, 100 U. S. 508, affirmed to the point that where the meaning of the Revised Statutes is plain, the court cannot recur to the original statutes to see if errors were committed in revising them, but it may do so, when necessary to construe doubtful language used in the revision.

Jefferson v. Driver, 117 U. S. 272, affirmed and applied to the point that the removal of a cause from a state court on the ground of local prejudice can be had only where all the parties to the suit on one side are citizens of different states from those on the other, and that the provision as to the removal of a separable controversy under the second subdivision of Rev.Stat. § 639 has no application to removals under the third subdivision.

This was an appeal from an order remanding the cause to the state court from whence it had been removed. The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
