Owings v. Lessee of Tiernan/Opinion of the Court

United States Supreme Court

35 U.S. 24

Owings  v.  Lessee of Tiernan

The rule of the court for docketing and dismissing causes has never been applied to any cases, where, before the motion was made, the cause had been actually placed on the docket. In the present case, the motion to dismiss, and the motion to docket the cause, are contemporaneous. The court are of opinion that, under such circumstances, the motion to docket the cause ought to be allowed; upon the usual bond for the clerk's fees being given. For this purpose time will be given to the plaintiff in error, (as it is asked), until the 1st day of March next. If by that time no bond is given, the cause will then be dismissed according the motion of the defendant in error.


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).
