U.S. Supreme Court

Street v. Ferry, 119 U.S. 385 (1886)

Street v. Ferry

Submitted November 23, 1886

Decided December 13, 1886

119 U.S. 385


The jurisdictional value referred to in c. 355, 23 Stat. 443, is the value at the time of the final judgment or decree, not at the time of the appeal or writ of error.

The patent referred to in the second section of the act is a patent for an invention or discovery, not a patent for land.

After examining affidavits in the cause filed in the court below after allowance of appeal, and in this Court since the case was docketed, the Court is satisfied that the value of the land in dispute is not sufficient to give jurisdiction.

This was an action for the recovery of real estate. Judgment for plaintiff and appeal. The appellee moved to dismiss chanroblesvirtualawlibrary

the appeal on the ground that the value of the premises in dispute did not exceed five thousand dollars, and also to affirm the judgment below.
