U.S. Supreme Court
Knapp v. Banks, 43 U.S. 2 How. 73 73 (1844)
Knapp v. Banks
43 U.S. (2 How.) 73
Where the plaintiff in the court below claims $2,000 or more, and the ruling of the court is for a less sum, he is entitled to a writ of error.
But the defendant is not entitled to such writ where the judgment against him is for a less sum than $2,000 at the time of the rendition thereof.
Banks had recovered a judgment in that court, against Knapp, for $1,720.
