Dennison v. Alexander, 103 U.S. 522 (1880)
Dennison v. Alexander
103 U.S. 522
A judgment or a decree of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia cannot be reexamined here unless the matter in dispute, exclusive of costs, exceeds the value of $2,500.
Alexander, on the fifth day of January, 1875, filed his bill in the court below against Dennison and others, commissioners of the District of Columbia, and the First National Bank to restrain the sale of real estate in the City of Washington which the commissioners had advertised to satisfy the amount due for improvements made by the board of public works. The certificate of indebtedness issued by that board and transferred to the bank, was for less than $400 and more than $100. A perpetual injunction was awarded and an appeal allowed by a justice of this Court.
