The fifth in a series on blunders made by the Supreme Court of the United States. In this article the case of Colgate v. Harvey (296 U.S. 404, 1935) is presented. The blunder made is that a citizen of the United States is a citizen of a State under Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution. However, it is shown that a citizen of the United States is a citizen of a State under Section 1, Clause 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment, not Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution of the United States of America.
