U.S. Supreme Court

Gruner v. United States, 52 U.S. 163 (1850)

Gruner v. United States

52 U.S. 163


Where a vessel was libeled in the district court and sold by agreement of parties, and the proceeds of sale amounted only to $ 850, which was paid into the registry, this is insufficient to bring the case within the jurisdiction of this Court, although an agreement by counsel was filed admitting the value of the vessel to be more than two thousand dollars.

This agreement would be evidence of the value if nothing to the contrary appeared in the record. But the decision of the court would only determine the right to the proceeds of sale, viz., $ 850, and the case must therefore be dismissed, for want of jurisdiction.

The facts in the case are sufficiently stated in the opinion of the Court.
