Oliver v. Alexander
APPEAL from the circuit court of the United States for the district of Maryland.
Mr Hoffman, for the appellees, moved to dismiss the appeal for want of jurisdiction; the sum in controversy between the appellants and the individual appellees not being sufficient to sustain the appeal.
The motion was argued by Mr Wirt and Mr Taney for the appellants; and by Mr Hoffman for the appellees.
Mr Justice STORY delivered the opinion of the Court.
