85 U.S. (18 Wall.) 588

Syllabus

A decree in a court below reversing a decree where, on a bill to foreclose a mortgage, a court below it had decreed in favor of the complainant and "remanding" the case to such inferior court for "such other and further proceedings as to law and justice shall appertain" is not a final decree within either the Judiciary Act of 1789 or the Act of 1867 amendatory of it. A writ taken on a contrary assumption dismissed.

On motion by Mr. R. E. Williams (the plaintiff in error himself opposing), to dismiss a writ of error to the Supreme Court of Illinois, the ground of the motion being that no final judgment or decree had been rendered.
