U.S. Supreme Court

Railroad Company v. Trook, 100 U.S. 112 (1879)

Railroad Company v. Trook

100 U.S. 112

Syllabus

Where a judgment for the recovery of money, affirmed in the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, is brought here for reexamination, the amount thereof, without adding interest or costs, determines the value of "the matter in dispute," under the Act of Feb. 25, 1579, 20 Stat. 320, and, if it does not exceed $2,500, this Court has no jurisdiction.

Trook, in an action in the court below against the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad Company, recovered judgment, Feb. 19, 1877, for $4,000 and costs of suit. A motion for a new trial was then made on exceptions taken during the progress of the cause, and on account of excessive damages. Trook entered a remittitur of $1,500, and the judgment was ultimately affirmed at a hearing in general term. The company then removed the case here by writ of error, which Trook moves to dismiss, on the ground that this Court, under the Act of Feb. 25, 1879, 20 Stat. 320, has no jurisdiction, as the "matter in dispute exclusive of costs" does not exceed "the value of $2,500."
