United States Supreme Court

57 U.S. 142

Davenport  v.  Fletcher

A motion has been made for a dismissal of this cause.

1. Because the judgment is not properly described in the writ of error.

2. Because the bond is given to a person who is not a party to the judgment.

3. Because the citation issued, is issued to a person who is not a party.

The objections are all founded in fact, and upon the authority of Samuel Smyth v. Strader, Perine & Co., 12 How. 327. The case is dismissed, with leave, however, to the counsel for the plaintiffs, to move for its reinstatement, during the present term.


This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States federal government (see 17 U.S.C. 105).
