Schell v. Dodge
Decided May 7, 1883
107 U.S. 629¥
Where a cause has been finally disposed of here by the dismissal of the writ of error, this Court has no power at a subsequent term to alter its judgment to one of affirmance, although if there had been a judgment of affirmance, interest during the pendency of the writ would have been allowed on the amount of the judgment below, and in the judgment of dismissal no such interest was allowed.
The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
