U.S. Supreme Court

Aran v. Zurrinach, 222 U.S. 395 (1912)

Aran v. Zurrinach

No. 146

Submitted December 22, 1911

Decided January 9, 1912

222 U.S. 395


Under the Act of April 12, 1900, c.191, 31 Stat. 85, this Court cannot review a judgment of the District Court of the United States for Porto Rico where the amount in controversy is less than five thousand dollars unless the validity or interpretation of an act of Congress is brought in question, or a right claimed thereunder is denied.

Not every mere question of irregularity in applying the law of the United States arising in the court below confers a right of review on this Court which otherwise would not exist, and where, as in this case, there is generality of statement and absence of specification to sustain the objections raised, in regard to qualifications and drawing of jurors in Porto Rico and the application of the federal statutes thereto, the questions raised will be regarded as too frivolous to sustain jurisdiction, and the writ of error will be dismissed.

The facts are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
