Judgment:
Jenness v. Citizens' National Bank of Rome - 110 U.S. 52 (1884)
U.S. Supreme Court Jenness v. Citizens' National Bank of Rome, 110 U.S. 52 (1884)

Jenness v. Citizens' National Bank of Rome

Submitted December 20, 1883

Decided January 7, 1884

110 U.S. 52

I N ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT FOR THE

EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN

Syllabus

When a judgment below is for an amount sufficient to give jurisdiction above, but it appears affirmatively on the record that after deducting from it an amount not in contest below, there remains less than the jurisdictional sum, this Court has no jurisdiction.

MR. CHIEF JUSTICE WAITE delivered the opinion of the Court

The judgment in this case is for $7,275.16, but it appears

Page 110 U. S. 53

affirmatively on the face of the record that of this amount $2,669.03 was not disputed below. The defense related alone to the difference between these two amounts, which is less than $5,000. The dispute here is only in reference to the amount contested below. Such being the case, we have no jurisdiction. The case of Gray v. Blanchard, 97 U. S. 564 ; Tintsman v. National Bank, 100 U. S. 6 , and Hilton v. Dickinson, 108 U. S. 165 , are conclusive to this effect.

Dismissed.
