U.S. Supreme Court
Kneeland v. American Loan & Trust Co., 138 U.S. 509 (1891)
Kneeland v. American Loan and Trust Company
Nos. 1539, 1540
Argued January 29-30, 1891
Decided March 2, 1891
138 U.S. 509
The decree in this case in the court below, founded on the report of a master, awarded to the complainant the recovery of rental for five months, separately stated. In this respect, the decree was sustained here, 136 U. S. 136 U.S. 89, but it was reversed and the cause remanded, in order to have the computation made, after inquiry into special subjects indicated in the mandate. The circuit court, after determining the special matters, regarded the matter of the time and amounts of the rental as settled by the former decree and as sustained by this Court, and awarded interest on the amounts from the date of the former decree: Held that there was no error in this; that the remanding of the cause did not reopen the whole subject of the accounts, but, on the contrary, contemplated no new investigation as to past matters.
Counsel should use respectful language, both in brief and in oral arguments.
In equity. The case is stated in the opinion.
