Black and White Taxicab Company v. Brown and Yellow Taxicab Company
by the Supreme Court of the United States
Syllabus
Black & White Taxicab Co. v. Brown & Yellow Taxicab Co. , 276 U.S. 518 (1928), was a decision by the Supreme Court in which the Court refused to hold that federal courts sitting in diversity jurisdiction must apply state common law. Ten years later, in Erie Railroad Co. v. Tompkins, the Court reversed course, and overturned Swift. — Excerpted from Black and White Taxicab Co. v.
