U.S. Supreme Court
Hohorst v. Hamburg-American Packet Co., 148 U.S. 262 (1893)
Hohorst v. Hamburg-American Packet Company
Argued March 13, 1893
Decided March 27, 1893
148 U.S. 262
A bill pending in a circuit court of the United States against a foreign corporation and other defendants citizens of the United States for the infringement of letters patent was dismissed as to the foreign corporation, and, so far as appeared from the record in the appeal from the judgment of dismissal, was still pending and undetermined as to the codefendants. Held that the decree in favor of the corporation was not a final decree from which an appeal could be taken to this court, and that this appeal must be dismissed for want of jurisdiction.
The case is stated in the opinion.
