Walker v. United States
71 U.S. (4 Wall.) 163
The jurisdiction of this Court to reexamine judgments of the circuit courts is limited to cases where the matter in dispute exceeds $2,000. Where it but equals that sum, the jurisdiction does not exist.
The United States had recovered judgment against Walker in the Circuit Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana "for the sum of $2,000, with interest thereon at the rate of
six percent," &c., and the case was now here on writ of error.
