The allowance of an appeal to this Court by the Court of Claims does not absolutely and of itself remove the cause from the jurisdiction of the latter court so that no order revoking such allowance can be made.
On petition of M. O. Roberts for a writ of mandamus to the Court of Claims to require that court to hear, entertain,
and decide a certain motion made there by him for a new trial and also to correct the records of the court in certain particulars set forth in the petition, the main question arising on the motion being whether the allowance of an appeal to this Court by the Court of Claims absolutely and of itself reoves a cause from its jurisdiction so that no order revoking such allowance can be made.
