No. 928

Submitted May 4, 1899

Decided May 25, 1896

163 U.S. 319

Syllabus

The objections of a creditor to the discharge of a bankrupt being dismissed for want of prosecution, the creditor filed his petition for revision in the circuit court of the United States. Issues were made up and the case heard. The circuit court held that the petition must be dismissed, and an order to that effect was entered. Thereupon the creditor appealed to the circuit court of appeals, which court dismissed the appeal for want of jurisdiction. Appeal was taken to this Court. Held that this Court had jurisdiction of such an appeal when it appeared affirmatively that the amount in controversy exceeded $1000, besides costs, which did not appear in this case.

Motion to dismiss.

The case is stated in the opinion.
