ERROR TO THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE

UNITED STATES FOR THE DISTRICT OF ORLEANS

Syllabus

A writ of error does not lie to an order of the court below to stay the proceedings finally upon the suggestion of the attorney for the United States, in a case to which the United States are not parties, but the court will award a mandamus nisi in the nature of a procedendo.

This was a writ of error to the District Court of the United States for the District of Orleans in a suit brought in that court by Edward Livingston against F. I. Le Breton Dorgenois, Marshal of the Territory of Orleans, according to the forms of the civil law as established in that territory.
