United States Supreme Court

72 U.S. 579

Jones  v.  La Vallette

A JUDGMENT had been rendered in the Circuit Court of the United States for the Eastern District of Louisiana, in favor of La Vallette against Jones, in the ordinary action by petition and summons, upon a promissory note. The defendants below took an appeal, seeking to bring the case into this court in that way.

Mr. Janin now moved to dismiss the appeal, contending that appeal was not the proper form of bringing up the case.

Mr. Durant, contra.

The CHIEF JUSTICE 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).
