Raymond v. Thomas - 91 U.S. 712 (1875)
U.S. Supreme Court
Raymond v. Thomas, 91 U.S. 712 (1875)
Raymond v. Thomas
91 U.S. 712
The special order, issued May 28, 1868, by the officer in command of the forces of the United States in South Carolina, wholly annulling a decree rendered by a court of chancery in that state in a case within its jurisdiction, was void. It was not warranted by the acts approved respectively March 2, 1861 (14 Stat. 428), and July 19 of the same year (25 U.S. id. 14), which define the powers and duties of military officers in command of the several states then lately in rebellion.
