Clifton v. Sheldon

64 U.S. (23 How.) 481


Where a decree was made by the circuit court, sitting in admiralty, that two persons should pay freight, one in the sum of $583.84, and the other in the sum of $1,754.22, and the latter only appealed to this Court, the appeal must be dismissed, as the amount in controversy is less than $2,000.

The rights of the two were distinct and independent, but if the freight be considered a joint matter, both should have joined in the appeal.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
