Barton v. Petit & Bayard, 11 U.S. 7 Cranch 288 288 (1813)

Barton v. Petit & Bayard

11 U.S. (7 Cranch) 288


If the original judgment be reversed, the reversal of the dependent judgment on the "forthcoming bond" follows of course, but a special certiorari is necessary to bring up the execution upon which the bond was given, so as to show the connection between the two judgments.

Error to the Circuit Court for the District of Virginia on a judgment rendered on a bond (technically called, in Virginia, a "forthcoming bond") given to the marshal with condition to have certain goods forthcoming at the day of sale appointed by the marshal, being goods which he had seized under a fi. fa. issued upon a former judgment recovered by Petit & Bayard against Barton, which judgment was reversed at the last term of this Court.
