ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT

OF APPEALS OF VIRGINIA

Syllabus

When the highest court of a state dismisses a case upon the ground that the matters involved were purely pecuniary, and that the amount in controversy was less than sufficient to give the court jurisdiction under the constitution of the state, no federal question arises.

When the court cannot pass upon a motion to dismiss without referring to the transcripts on file, it will deny the motion without prejudice. chanrobles.com-red
