United States ex Rel. Trask v. Wanamaker

No. 1232

Argued and submitted December 20-21, 1892

Decided January 3, 1893

147 U.S. 149

Syllabus

A writ of error does not lie to a judgment of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, denying a writ of mandamus to the Postmaster General to compel him to readjust the salary of a postmaster when the additional amount to become due him would be less than $5,000, and this is not affected by the fact that many similar claims for relief exist, in which the aggregate amount involved is over $100,000.
