U.S. Supreme Court

Peninsular Iron Co. v. Stone, 121 U.S. 631 (1887)

Peninsular Iron Company v. Stone

Argued April 18, 1887

Decided May 2, 1887

121 U.S. 631


The rights of each and all of the parties in this case being separate and distinct, but depending on one contract, they elected to join in enforcing the common obligation, and, as one citizen of Ohio is a necessary party on one side, and another citizen of that state a necessary party on the other, with interests so conflicting that the relief prayed for cannot be had without keeping them opposed, the cause is remanded (with costs against the appellants in this Court) to the circuit court with directions to dismiss it for want of jurisdiction.

This was a bill in equity to compel an accounting. The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
