Macomb v. Armstead
35 U.S. (10 Pet.) 407
ERROR TO THE COURT OF APPEALS
FOR THE TERRITORY OF FLORIDA
The plaintiff in error had lodged with the clerk of the Court a transcript of the record of the cause, but had failed to have the transcript filed or the cause docketed, in pursuance of the rules of the Court. The Court refused to docket or dismiss the case on the motion of the counsel of the defendant in error, who asked the Court to dispense with the certificate required by the sixteenth rule of the Court and to substitute the transcript lodged with the clerk of the Court by the plaintiff in error as and for the said certificate.
By the court: "The defendant in error, to entitle himself to the benefit of the rule, must produce the certificate of the clerk, as required by the rule."
