Ketcham v. Burr


No. 114


Submitted January 2, 1918
Decided January 14, 1918
245 U.S. 510

APPEAL FROM THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN

Syllabus

Appellant, having been for a time confined in an asylum as an insane person after due proceedings in a state probate court, took no appeal or other proceedings in the state courts, but, long after his escape, filed this bill against the owner and officials of the asylum, the present and former judges and registers of the probate court, and others to regain certain documents and set aside the inquisition. Held that no construction or application of the Constitution was involved, and hence this Court lacked jurisdiction of a direct appeal from the district court.

Appeal dismissed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
