Rogers v. Lee County, 154 U.S. 547 (1866)
Rogers v. Lee County
Submitted January 4, 1866
Decided January 22, 1866
154 U.S. 547
ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED
STATES FOR THE DISTRICT OF IOWA
Reversed on the authority of Rogers v. Keokuk, ante, 154 U. S. 546.
The case is stated in the opinion.
MR. JUSTICE GRIER delivered the opinion of the Court.
In this case, the court instructed the jury that "under the evidence, the bonds issued were without authority and were void."
The facts of this case, and the question of law arising thereon, are the same in substance as those in the preceding case of Rogers
v. City of Keokuk. Without again repeating our reasons, it is ordered that the judgment he reversed, and a venire de novo be awarded.
