Bangs v. Blue Ridge Railroad Company
THIS was an appeal from the Circuit Court of the United States for the northern district of Georgia.
A motion was made by Mr. Phillips, on behalf of the appellees, to dismiss the appeal, upon the ground that no appeal bond was given at the time of granting the appeal, as required by the statute, either as a security for costs or supersedeas of execution.
Mr. Johnson opposed the motion and offered to give a bond for costs, and thus prevent the dismissal, if consistent with the practice of the court.
After argument by these two counsel, Mr. Justice NELSON delivered the opinion of the court.
