Perrine v. Slack, 164 U.S. 452 (1896)

Perrine v. Slack

No. 549

Submitted October 13, 1896

Decided November 30, 1896

164 U.S. 452


The controversy in this case being between the mother and the testamentary guardian of infant children, each claiming the right to their custody and care, the matter in dispute is of such a nature as to be incapable of being reduced to any pecuniary standard of value, and for this, and for the reasons given in Chapman v. United States, ante, 164 U. S. 436, it is held that this Court has no jurisdiction to review judgments of the Court of Appeals under such circumstances.

Page 164 U. S. 453
