Healy v. Sea Gull Specialty Company
Argued May 3, 1915
Decided May 17, 1915
237 U.S. 479
Where it appear from the plaintiff's statement that his case is for infringement and arose under the patent laws, the district court has jurisdiction notwithstanding the fact that he may also rely upon a contract as furnishing the mode in which the damages grounded on infringement should be ascertained.
The facts, which involve the jurisdiction of the district court in a case involving infringement of patent, are stated in the opinion.
