No. 14

Argued April 12, 13, 1910

Decided May 16, 1910

217 U.S. 561

Syllabus

Jurisdiction to review, when dependent on amount, is determined by the amount directly, and not contingently, involved in the decree sought to be reviewed.

A writ of error will not lie to review a judgment of the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia confirming assessments for less than $5,000, even though plaintiff in error may be contingently liable in case the judgment stands for other assessments exceeding $5,000, in the same proceeding on other lots disposed of pending the proceeding.

Writ of error to review 31 App.D.C. 130 dismissed.

The facts, which involve the validity of certain assessments in the District of Columbia, and the jurisdiction of this Court to review judgments of the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia, are stated in the opinion.
