United States Supreme Court

22 U.S. 650

McIver  v.  Wattles

ERROR to the Circuit Court for the District of Columbia. Feb. 15th.

Upon inspection of the record, it appeared that the sum in controversy was below one thousand dollars, and, thereupon, the Court directed the writ of error to be dismissed.

Mr. Taylor, for the defendant in error, moved for costs.

Mr. Chief Justice MARSHALL said, that in all cases where the cause is dismissed for want of jurisdiction, no costs are allowed.
