Decided April 7, 1890

134 U.S. 537


Gibson v. Shufeldt, 122 U. S. 27, affirmed to the point that

"in a suit in equity brought in the circuit court by two or more persons on several and distinct demands, the defendant can appeal to this Court as to those plaintiffs only to each of whom more than $5,000 is decreed."

Motion to dismiss an appeal in equity upon the ground that "the decree appealed from was not a joint decree, and imposed no joint debt, liability, or obligation," but that it was a series of distinct decrees against distinct parties on distinct causes of action. The case is stated in the opinion. The cause was argued on its merits as well as on the motion to dismiss.
