BUTCHER v. COATS, 1 U.S. 340 (1788)

1 U.S. 340 (Dall.)


Supreme Court of Pennsylvania

July Term, 1788

Two witnesses, who had been duly served with a Subpoenia, were brought before the Court upon an attachment; but having satisfactorily proved, that they were so much indisposed, as to be utterly incapable of attending in obedience to the Subpoena, they were discharged.

And, by the Court: As we do not find these persons in contempt, the costs of the attachment must abide the event of the suit.[ Butcher v. Coats 1 U.S. 340 (1788) ]
