U.S. Supreme Court
Chatfield v. Boyle, 105 U.S. 231 (1881)
Chatfield v. Boyle
105 U.S. 231
1. A person having made an assignment in favor of his creditors, one of them in behalf of himself and such others as would unite with him, filed his bill to set aside as fraudulent a previous conveyance in favor of A. and to exclude from the benefit of the assignment A. who, he alleged, was not a creditor. Several creditors united as complainants. The bill was dismissed, and they appealed. Held that the matter in dispute is not the entire fund, but their distributive shares thereof, and the amount being less than $5,000, this Court has no jurisdiction.
2. Terry v. Hatch, 93 U. S. 44, cited and approved.
The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
