Palmer v. Donner

74 U.S. (7 Wall.) 541

Syllabus

A district judge has no authority to sign a citation upon a writ of error to a state court. When the citation has been thus signed, the writ of error will be dismissed on motion.

This was a motion, made by Mr. J. H. Bradley, to dismiss a writ of error directed to the Supreme Court of the State of California on the ground that the citation had been signed by a district judge, which the record showed was the fact.
