United States Supreme Court

121 U.S. 182

Burlington Railway Company  v.  Dunn


This case is within the spirit, although not within the letter, of rule 32. The state court refused to let go its jurisdiction on a petition for removal, and the supreme court of the state has affirmed the ruling of the trial court to that effect. The only question for our consideration on the writ of error is whether this decision was right. The case is advanced, to be brought on for hearing in the way provided by rule 32; that is to say, under the rules prescribed by rule 6 in regard to motions to dismiss writs of error or appeals.
