In re District of Columbia

Nos. 13 and 14, Original

Argued January 21, 1901

Decided February 11, 1901

180 U.S. 250

Syllabus

Section 1088 of the Revised Statutes relates to cases in which the Court of Claims is satisfied from the evidence that some fraud, wrong or injustice has been done the United States as matter of fact, and this is so in its application to the District of Columbia under the Act of June 18, 1880.

The motions for new trial involved in these cases were grounded on error of law, to correct which the remedy was by appeal.

Resort cannot be had to motions under § 1088 simply because, on appeals in other similar cases, it had been determined by this Court that the court below had erred.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
