U.S. Supreme Court
Great Western Ins. Co. v. United States, 112 U.S. 193 (1884)
Great Western Insurance Company v. United States
Argued October 14-15, 1884
Decided November 10, 1884
112 U.S. 193
A claim against the United States for a part of the money received from Great Britain in payment of the award made at Geneva under the Treaty of Washington is both a claim growing out of a treaty stipulation and a claim dependent upon such stipulation, and is excluded from the jurisdiction of the Court of Claims by § 1066 Rev.Stat.
These were suits against the United States to recover portions of the Geneva award. The insurance company sued on
its own account; the plaintiff Paulson, as receiver of the Columbian Insurance Company. Motions to dismiss for want of jurisdiction were made in both cases, and were heard together. The facts making the case are stated in the opinion of the Court.
