Loeber v. Schroeder, 149 U.S. 580 (1893)
Loeber v. Schroeder
Submitted May 1, 1893
Decided May 10, 1893
149 U.S. 580
A writ of error will not lie to review an order of the highest court of a state overruling a motion to quash a fieri facias. The refusal to quash a writ is not a final judgment within the contemplation of the Judiciary Acts of the general government.
It is settled that the attempt for the first time to raise a federal question after judgment and on petition for rehearing comes too late. The motion in this case, to quash the fieri facias on the ground that the order of the court directing it to issue was void stands upon no better footing in such respect than a petition for rehearing would have done.
The case is stated in the opinion.
