MCIVER AND OTHERS
ERROR to the Circuit Court for the District of Columbia.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Mr. Chief Justice Marshall said, that in all cases where the cause is dismissed for want of jurisdiction, no costs are allowed.
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.
