U.S. Supreme Court

Harty v. Victoria, 226 U.S. 12 (1913)

Harty v. Victoria

No. 13

Argued October 30, 1912

Decided November 11, 1912

226 U.S. 12


A suit to recover real estate, like an ordinary action at law, can only be brought to this Court from the Supreme Court of the Philippine Islands by writ of error; it cannot be brought by appeal.

Where, as in this case, there is no question of law, this Court cannot, on writ of error, review the finding of the Supreme Court of the Philippine Islands that the preponderance of contradictory evidence was on the defendant's side.

Quaere whether, in this case the jurisdictional amount of $25,000 was involved.

Appeal from and writ of error to review 18 Phil. 600 dismissed.

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