Terry v. Abraham, 93 U.S. 38 (1876)

Terry v. Abraham

93 U.S. 38

Syllabus

1. Where an appellant obtains an order of severance in the court below, and does not make parties to his appeal some of the parties below who are interested in maintaining the decree, he cannot ask its reversal here on any matter which will injuriously affect their interests.

2. When an appellant seeks to reverse a decree because too large an allowance was made to the appellees out of a fund in which he and they were both interested, he will not be permitted to do so when he has received allowances of the same kind, and has otherwise waived his right to make the specific objection which he raises for the first time here.
