St. Clair County v. Lovingston - 85 U.S. 628 (1873)
U.S. Supreme Court
St. Clair County v. Lovingston, 85 U.S. 18 Wall. 628 628 (1873)
St. Clair County v. Lovingston
85 U.S. (18 Wall.) 628
No judgment is final which does not terminate the litigation between the parties. A judgment reversing the judgment of an inferior court and remanding the cause for such other and further proceedings as to law and justice shall appertain does not do this. A writ of error to such a judgment dismissed on the authority of Moore v. Robbins, supra, p. 85 U. S. 588.
The County of St. Clair, in Illinois, sued Lovingston in the circuit court of the county and got judgment against him. The Supreme Court of Illinois reversed this judgment and remanded the cause "for such other and further proceedings as to law and justice shall appertain." To that judgment the county took this writ of error.
