Dissenting Opinion

United States Supreme Court

96 U.S. 37

The United States  v.  Cyrus C. Clark

Appeal from the Court of Claims

No. 804.  Argued: January 14, 1878. --- Decided: February 25, 1878.

APPEAL from the Court of Claims.

This case was, on the appeal of the United States, before this court at the last term, and is reported in 94 U.S. 73, where the finding of the Court of Claims is stated.

The judgment below was then reversed, on account of an insufficient finding, and the cause remanded for further proceedings. Upon a subsequent trial, the Court of Claims made a further finding, and rendered judgment for Clark. The United States then brought the case here. As the additional finding is set forth in the opinion of this court, it is not necessary to insert it here.

Mr. Assistant-Attorney-General Smith for the United States.

Mr. Thomas H. Talbot, contra.

MR. JUSTICE MILLER delivered the opinion of the court.
