United States v. Minnesota and Northwestern Railroad Company

59 U.S. (18 How.) 241

Syllabus

Where the United States brought a case up to this Court as plaintiffs in error, and the Attorney General moved for a discontinuance upon the ground that he wished other questions to be presented upon the record which he deemed necessary for a full elucidation of the case, the Court, without expressing an opinion upon these other questions, will grant the motion made by the legal representative of the government.

This was a motion by Mr. Cushing Attorney General, to withdraw the writ of error, and discontinue the appeal to this Court, to which the case had been brought up, by writ of error, from the Supreme Court of the Territory of Minnesota.
