|Notes:||"Dred Scott, plaintiff in error, v. John F.A. Sandford. This case, which was an ordinary action of assault and battery, came up by writ of error from the Circuit court for the District of Missouri."--Page .
The questions which arose in the U.S. Supreme court were whether the plaintiff-in-error, a negro, was a citizen of the United States, in the sense in which that word is used in the Constitution, and whether the U.S. Circuit court had jurisdiction in the above mentioned case. The constitutionality of the Missouri compromise act was also brought into question.
