Sewall v. Chamberlain

46 U.S. (5 How.) 6

Syllabus

Where the prayer of a bill in equity shows that the demand of the complainant is susceptible of definite computation, and that there can be no recovery over the sum of two thousand dollars, the appeal to this Court will be dismissed on motion for want of jurisdiction.

The facts in the case are sufficiently set forth in the opinion of the Court.
