U.S. Supreme Court
Ex Parte Baltimore & Ohio R. Co., 108 U.S. 566 (1883)
Ex Parte Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company
Decided May 7, 1883
108 U.S. 566
A writ of mandamus cannot be used to bring up for review a judgment of a circuit court on a plea to the jurisdiction.
Where a circuit court on demurrer vacated and quashed a writ of replevin for want of jurisdiction, it was a final judgment, and it was, if the case was otherwise within the court's jurisdiction, subject to review on a writ of error.
Motion to dismiss a petition for mandamus to the Circuit Court of the United States for the Western District of Virginia to direct that court to take jurisdiction in a replevin suit.
