No. 276

Submitted April 11, 1890

Decided April 21, 1890

135 U.S. 195

ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF LOUISIANA

Syllabus

A suit was brought to recover from T. possession of a tract of land of about 35 acres, part of a larger tract of 186 acres which the plaintiff claimed to own. The lessor of T. of the 35 acres was made defendant, and answered, claiming to own the land sued for and also the rest of the 186 acres. The plaintiff recovered a judgment for the 35 acres, their value not exceeding $2,000. The value of the 186 acres was about $10,000. The lessor having brought the case to this Court by a writ of error, it was dismissed on the ground that the amount involved was not sufficient to give this Court jurisdiction, because it did not exceed $5,000, exclusive of costs.

The case is stated in the opinion.
