Alvord v. United States

99 U.S. 593

ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT

OF THE TERRITORY OF IDAHO

Syllabus

1. The court announces its determination to enforce rigidly the rules requiring causes to be ready for hearing when they are reached.

2. Counsel who enter their appearance under the requirements of Rule 9 will be held responsible for all that such an entry implies until, by substitution or otherwise, they are relieved from the obligation they have assumed.

Motion to reinstate cause dismissed under Rule 16.

MR. CHIEF JUSTICE WAITE announced the judgment of the Court.

This application comes directly within the rule laid down in Hurley v. Jones,97 U. S. 318. As we took occasion to say in that case, "our rules requiring causes to be ready for hearing when reached are and will continue to be rigidly enforced." We recognize no pro forma attorneys of record. Counsel who enter their appearance under the requirements of Rule 9 must understand that the Court will hold them responsible for all that such an entry implies until they relieve themselves from the obligation they assume, by substitution or otherwise.

Motion denied.
