U.S. Supreme Court
Campbell's Executors v. Pratt, 27 U.S. 2 Pet. 354 354 (1829)
Campbell's Executors v. Pratt
27 U.S. (2 Pet.) 354
The Court refused to reverse the decree of the Circuit Court of the County of Washington although an error had been committed in proceeding under the mandate from this Court, as no benefit would result to the appellant from a reversal.
The matters in controversy in this case arose out of proceedings in the circuit court under the mandate of this Court issued at February term, 1815, in the case of Pratt v. Campbell, 9 Cranch 456.
In the circuit court, the appellants in this case filed their bill alleging that they had been injured by the proceedings under the mandate, 9 Cranch 58, and that the court gave a decree against their claims as set forth in the bill. From this decree they appealed.
