Montelibano y Ramos v. La Compania
General de Tabacos de Filipinas
Submitted March 8, 1916
Decided June 5, 1916
241 U.S. 455
In an action of an equitable nature the proper method of review by this Court of the judgment of the Supreme Court of the Philippine Islands under the act of July 1, 1902, § 10, is by appeal and not by writ of error.
Where both courts below concurred in findings of fact and conclusions of law, it is the duty of this Court to affirm their judgment unless it appears that they clearly erred, and so held in a case involving the
construction of, and transactions under, an agreement special in form whose true construction was in controversy.
The facts, which involve the jurisdiction of this Court to review judgments of the Supreme Court of the Philippine Islands and the validity of a judgment of that court in an action on contract between private parties, are stated in the opinion.
