Benites v. Hampton

Submitted November 8, 1887

Decided December 5, 1887

123 U.S. 519

Syllabus

There being no assignment of errors in the transcript annexed to the writ of error, no specification of errors in the brief, no statement presenting the questions involved, no reference to pages in the argument, and generally a noncompliance with the provisions of the statute and the rules of this Court in these respects, the case is dismissed for those causes.

An assignment of errors on appeal from the district court to the Supreme Court of a territory cannot be accepted in this Court as the equivalent of the assignment required by the statute.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
