Life & Fire Insurance Company of New York v. Adams

34 U.S. (9 Pet.) 571

MOTION FOR MANDAMUS TO BE DIRECTED TO THE

DISTRICT JUDGE OF THE DISTRICT OF LOUISIANA

Syllabus

Louisiana. Mandamus. Although no rule to show cause why a mandamus should not issue to the District Judge of Louisiana had been granted by the court; the district judge had agreed to appear, as if a rule had been granted by this Court, and had been served upon him; and copies of the papers on which the motion for a mandamus was founded, had been served on the district judge and on the parties in the suit in which the mandamus was to operate, during the vacation. The district judge filed an answer, as if the rule had been served on him, and appeared by counsel, waived the formal rule on notice, and stated his readiness to show cause. By the Court:

"Under such circumstances, there is no necessity for directing a rule to be entered and notice to be given; all the purposes of the rule are accomplished."
