United States Supreme Court

33 U.S. 526

Deneale  v.  Archer

IN error to the circuit court of the United States for the county of Alexandria, in the District of Columbia.

Upon the opening of the record in this case, it was found that the writ of error had been issued in the name of Mary Deneale, executrix of George Deneale, and others.

Mr Coxe, for the defendants, objected to the writ of error as informal. All the parties to the proceedings in the circuit court should be parties to the writ of error. Those who have not joined in it, are not before the court. The court cannot know who are the persons meant by 'others.'

Mr Lee, for the plaintiff in error, contended, that the record showed who were the parties to the case.

Mr Chief Justice MARSHALL delivered the opinion of the Court.


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).
