Swing v. Weston Lumber Co., 205 U.S. 275 (1907)

Swing v. Weston Lumber Company

No 145

Argued January 10, 1907

Decided April 8, 1907

205 U.S. 275


The state has undoubted power to prohibit foreign insurance companies from doing business within its limits, or, in allowing them to do so, to impose such condition as it pleases.

Where the state court decides that a foreign insurance company cannot recover assessments on a policy issued within the state because it has not complied with the statutory conditions imposed by the state, no federal question is involved, and a request to find that the state statute could not prevent the insured from going outside the state and obtaining insurance on property within the state does not raise a federal question, where the fact was otherwise, and the writ of error will be dismissed.

140 Mich. 344 affirmed.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
