In Scarborough v. Pargoud, 108 U.S. 567, 568 (1883), the U.S. Supreme Court held that, prior to the creation of the circuit courts of appeals, statutory limitations on the timing of appeals were limitations on its own jurisdiction. "[T]he writ of error in this case was not brought within the time limited by law, and we have consequently no jurisdiction."
