Western Air Line Construction Company v. McGillis
Submitted April 9, 1888
Decided April 16, 1888
127 U.S. 776
The Court, for reasons stated in its opinion, denies a motion to vacate a supersedeas or to make an order that the appeal bond filed in the case does not operate as a supersedeas.
The defendants in error made the following motion:
"And now come the defendants in error in the above cause, by John S. Cooper, their attorney and counsel, and move the
Court to vacate the supersedeas in the above cause or for an order declaring that the appeal bond filed by appellant in said cause does not operate as a supersedeas, because the writ of error was not sued out or served within sixty days after the rendering of the judgment entered and complained of in said cause."
