M'Call v. Peachy
The Court of Appeals sought to answer whether it had jurisdiction over a High Court of Chancery case for an interlocutory decree that was appealed by the consent of both parties rather than permitted to be appealed by Chancellor Wythe.
The Court's Decision
The Court Appeals determined that the consent of both parties cannot give jurisdiction.
