Herman v. Phalen
THESE two cases were brought up, by writ of error, from the Circuit Court of the United States for the Eastern District of Louisiana, and were argued together by Mr. Allen and Mr. Ovid F. Johnson for the defendant in error. No counsel appeared for the plaintiff in error.
The points in the case were argued in the case of League v. De Young, 11 Howard, 188, to which the reporter refers.
Mr. Chief Justice TANEY delivered the opinion of the court.
