U.S. Supreme CourtChesbrough v. Northern Trust Co., 252 U.S. 83 (1920)
Chesbrough v. Northern Trust Company
Argued January 30, 1920
Decided March 1, 1920
252 U.S. 83
In an action in tort, the amount involved is the damages claimed if the declaration discloses nothing rendering such a recovery impossible and no bad faith appears. P. 252 U. S. 84.
After a case of that character has been removed by defendant from a state court and judgment rendered against him in the district court and circuit court of appeals, it would require very clear error to justify this Court in denying the jurisdiction upon the ground that the requisite amount was not involved. Id.
251 F. 881 affirmed.
The case is stated in the opinion.
