Ward v. Gregory

32 U.S. (7 Pet.) 633

APPEALS FROM THE COURT OF APPEALS

FOR THE TERRITORY OF FLORIDA

Syllabus

A mandamus was issued by the Superior Court of Appeals of the Eastern Middle District of Florida directed to the Register and Receiver of the Western Land District of Florida commanding them to permit the entry and purchase of certain lands. From this proceeding the register and receiver appealed to this Court. The appeal was dismissed, the proceeding at mandamus being at common law, and therefore the removal to this Court should have been by writ of error.

White moved to dismiss these cases, on the grounds that the proceedings were at law in the courts of the United States for the Territory of Florida, and that they had been brought up from the court of appeals of that territory by appeals instead of by writs of error.
