U.S. Supreme Court

Enriquez v. Enriquez, 222 U.S. 123 (1911)

Enriquez v. Enriquez

No. 24

Argued October 31, 1911

Decided December 4, 1911

222 U.S. 123


Under § 10 of the Act of July 1, 1902, c. 1369, 32 Stat. 695, this Court can only review judgments of the Supreme Court of the Philippine Islands where the value in controversy exceeds $25,000, and where only a half interest of property is affected, jurisdiction does not exist unless the value of such half interest exceeds that amount.

An affidavit that the value of the real property involved in the action exceeds $25,000 is not sufficient to confer jurisdiction where only a one-half interest is affected and the context of the affidavit gives rise to the inference that the statements as to value relate to the entire property, and not to a half interest therein.

In this case, resort to the record shows that the value of the interest in the property affected is less than the jurisdictional amount.

The facts, which involve the jurisdiction of this Court of appeals from the Supreme Court of the Philippine Islands, are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
