Guion v. Liverpool, London & Globe Ins. Co., 109 U.S. 173 (1883)
Guion v. Liverpool, London & Globe Insurance Company
Argued October 15, 1883
Decided November 5, 1883
109 U.S. 173
A person not a party to a suit cannot take an appeal in it.
On the 2d day of July, 1879, William H. Guion, claiming to have an interest in bonds of the appellee which were the subject of controversy in the suit of Indiana Southern Railroad Company v. Liverpool, London & Globe Insurance Company, just reported, filed his petition in that suit in the court below, asking to be admitted as a party to the suit for his own protection. This petition was denied. Guion was allowed an appeal on giving bond and security for cost, but the transcript does not show that he ever gave the bond.
The case was argued simultaneously with the case of Indiana Southern Railroad Company, and by the same counsel.
