Decided February 19, 1912

223 U.S. 185


The full faith and credit clause of the Constitution does not extend to judgments of foreign states or nations, and unless there is a treaty relative thereto, this Court has no jurisdiction under § 709, Rev.Stat., to review a judgment of a state court on the ground that it failed to give full faith and credit to a judgment of a court of a foreign country.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
