U.S. Supreme Court

Bradstreet Company v. Higgins, 112 U.S. 227 (1884)

Bradstreet Company v. Higgins

Submitted October 27, 1884

Decided November 17, 1884

112 U.S. 227

Syllabus

When the jurisdiction of this Court for review of the judgments and decrees of circuit courts depends upon the amount in controversy, that amount is the sum shown by the whole record, including counterclaims, and not by the claims set up by the plaintiff only. Hilton v. Dickinson, 108 U. S. 165, affirmed.

This was a motion to dismiss for want of jurisdiction, it being alleged that the amount in controversy was not sufficient to give jurisdiction. The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court. chanrobles.com-redchanrobles.com-red
