In a suit to enjoin execution of an award for disabling personal injuries, made under the California Compensation Act and requiring present payments and future indemnity payments during a maximum period, it was proven that the defendant was cured before the bill as filed, so that the total liability was less than $3,000, though it would have been more had his disability continued, and that the award had been reduced accordingly by action of the proper authority, upon his application, while the suit was pending. Held that the district court had no jurisdiction. P. 257 U. S. 221.
