Syllabus

On motion of the plaintiff made after commencement of the trial of this case, a juror was withdrawn, the remaining jurors were dismissed, and leave was given to the plaintiff to amend his declaration within a time named, and the case was continued for the term. Subsequently, on motion of the defendants' attorney, made after notice to plaintiff, the time within which the amendment could be filed was enlarged, and the plaintiff was ordered to pay the costs of the term in which the juror was withdrawn. The plaintiff declined to pay those costs, and the court dismissed the case. Held that the trial court erred in so doing, as whatever conditions or rights the defendants were entitled to in consequence of the plaintiff's motion should have been asserted and adjudged when that motion was made.

The statement of the case will be found in the opinion of the Court.
