Citibank, N.A. v. Wells Fargo Asia Ltd., 495 U.S. 660 (1990)

CHIEF JUSTICE REHNQUIST, concurring.

Upon reading the opinion of the Court in this case, one may fairly inquire as to why certiorari was granted. The opinion decides no novel or undecided question of federal law, but simply recanvasses the same material already canvassed by the Court of Appeals and comes to a different conclusion than that court did. I do not believe that granting plenary review in a case such as this is a wise use of our limited judicial resources. But the Court, by its grant of certiorari, has decided that the case should be considered on the merits. See Ferguson v. Moore-McCormack Lines, Inc., 352 U.S. 521, 559 (1957) (Harlan, J., dissenting). I join the opinion of the Court.
