There is no jurisdiction for a federal court in this case. The complaint shows that both plaintiff and defendant are residents of Pennsylvania. The subject matter is a claimed tort which is alleged to have taken place in Pennsylvania. Since, under the statutes, there is no jurisdiction for a federal court to act, the appeal will be dismissed for want of jurisdiction.
