Heitmuller v. Stokes
Argued April 21, 22, 1921
Decided May 16, 1921
256 U.S. 359
The defendant in error, having secured judgment for the possession of his real estate, sold the premises to a stranger, after the case had been removed to this Court by writ of error, leaving the defendant in possession. Held that, as no controversy remained between the parties, except as to costs, this Court would not decide the merits,
but would lay the costs of this writ of error upon the defendant in error and revere the judgment with instruction to dismiss the complaint. P. 256 U. S. 361.
49 App.D.C. 391, 266 F. 1011, reversed.
The case is stated in the opinion.
