Saunders v. Gould

29 U.S. (4 Pet.) 392

Syllabus

Where the whole cause, and not a point or points in the cause, has been adjourned from the circuit court to this Court, the case will be remanded to the circuit court.

The case was admitted to be essentially the same with that of Gardner v. Collins, 2 Pet. 58, but the counsel for the plaintiff relied on evidence adduced to show a settled judicial construction of the act of the Legislature of Rhode Island relative to descents different from that which had been made in this Court. "The court is not convinced that the construction of the act which prevails in Rhode Island is opposed to that which was made by this Court."
