Schacker v. Hartford Fire Insurance Company United States Supreme Court Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

On opening this record, we find that the action below was assumpsit upon a policy of insurance for $1,400. There are two counts in the declaration, but they are both upon the same cause of action; and although the damages, both in the writ and declaration, and laid at $3,000, it is apparent from the whole record that there could not be a recovery in any event for more than $1,400 and interest from July 14, 1873. Our jurisdiction, when this writ issued, was limited in cases of this character to those in which the 'matter in dispute, exclusive of costs, exceeds the sum or value of $2,000.' Rev. Stat., sect. 692. Now, in the same class of cases, where a judgment or decree has been rendered since May 1, 1875, the amount must be $5,000. 18 Stat. 316.
