United States Supreme Court

101 U.S. 112

Market Company  v.  Hoffman

2. Where a number of bidders filed such a bill, the value of the right to sell, which the company claimed and the court below denied, determines the jurisdiction here. Where, therefore, a sale which would have produced more than $2,500 was enjoined by the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, the company is entitled to an appeal, under the act of Feb. 25, 1879. 20 Stat. 320.

APPEAL from the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the court.

Mr. William Birney for the appellant.

Mr. Richard T. Merrick for the appellee.

MR. JUSTICE STRONG delivered the opinion of the court.
