West v. Brashear (37 U.S. 101)/Opinion of the Court

< West v. Brashear (37 U.S. 101)

United States Supreme Court

37 U.S. 101

West  v.  Brashear

In this case an appeal has been taken from the decree of the circuit court for the eighth circuit, and a copy of the record in due form has been lodged by the appellants with the clerk. But he case has not been docketed, because the appellants have not filed the bond to secure the fees to the clerk of this Court, prescribed by the rule No. 37, adopted at January term, 1831.

Upon the record brought here as abovementioned, the appellee has moved the Court for leave to docket and dismiss the case, under the 30th rule. We think this cannot be done. The appellee, upon producing the certificate from the clerk of the circuit court, as required by the 30th rule of this Court, stating the cause and certifying that such an appeal had been duly sued out and allowed, will be entitled to have the case docketed and dismissed. But this cannot be done on the record brought here by the appellants.

The motion is therefore overruled.


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).
