Syllabus

Section 716, Rev.Stat., does not empower this Court to review the proceedings of military tribunals by certiorari.

The Act of April 12, 1900, c.191, having discontinued the tribunal established under that act and created a successor authorized to take possession of its records and to take jurisdiction of all cases and proceedings pending therein, this Court has no jurisdiction to review its proceedings.

Such tribunals are not courts with jurisdiction in law or equity within the meaning of those terms as used in Article Three of the Constitution.
