PHILIPPINE SUPREME COURT DECISIONS

EN BANC

[G.R. No. 2631. November 18, 1905. ]

EDWIN H. WARNER, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. 771 OBJECTORS, Appellants.

Buencamino & Diokno, for Appellants.

Del-Pan, Ortigas & Fisher, for Appellee.

SYLLABUS


1. WRITS OF ERROR; UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT; VALUE IN CONTROVERSY. — A case can not be removed by the defendants to the Supreme Court of the United States under the "amount in controversy" clause where each defendant claims title to the exclusion of his codefendants to a district and separate tract of land, the value of no one of said tracts being $25,000, though the value of all of them taken together does exceed that sum.

2. APPEALS BY PAUPERS; UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT. — An order allowing the appellants to litigate as paupers in the Supreme Court of the Philippine does not give them that right in the Supreme Court of the United States.


D E C I S I O N


WILLARD, J. :


The appellants have presented a petition asking that the case be removed to the Supreme Court of the United States by a writ of error. There are several reasons why the petition should be denied. The order of the court below allowing the appellants to prosecute their appeal to this court as paupers does not give them that right in the Supreme Court of the United States. They would not be entitled to a supersedeas without giving the security required by law.

The petition mis not in proper form, and it does not appear that any assignment of error has been filed.

No ground for removing the case is alleged. Neither the Constitution nor any statute, treaty, title, right, or privilege of the United States is involved in the case.

Each one of the 771 appellants filed a separate answer in the court below, in which he claimed ownership of a certain tract of land. No one of the appellants has or claims any interest in the tracts of land claimed by the other appellants. Under these circumstances no one of them has a right to remove the case to the Supreme Court of the United States unless the tract of l and of which he claims to be the owner exceeds in value $25,000, in money of the United States. The fact that all of the different in value that sum does not give them the right to such removal. (Tupper v. Wise, 110 U.S., 398.)

The petition for a writ of error is denied, and the case will be remanded to the Court of Land Registration, from which it proceeded, ten days after the entry of judgment in this case. So ordered.

Arellano, C.J., Torres, Mapa, Johnson and Carson, JJ., concur.
