United States v. Hall
Submitted January 3, 1893
Decided March 6, 1893
147 U.S. 691
On the authority of United States v. Ewing, 140 U. S. 142, the charges of a commissioner of a circuit court for docket fees are disallowed, and the charges for acknowledgments of sureties on recognizances of defendants in prosecutions brought by the United States reduced to a fee for a single acknowledgment.
This was an action by a commissioner of the Circuit Court of the United States for the Northern District of Ohio for docket fees, and for fees for taking the acknowledgment of sureties upon recognizances. The court rendered a judgment in favor of the petitioner for $336.75, and the United States appealed.
