Davies v. Corbin

Submitted March 3, 1885

Decided March 18, 1885

113 U.S. 687


The docketing by the defendant in error of a cause in advance of the return day of the writ of error does not prevent the plaintiff in error from doing what is necessary while the writ is in life to give it full effect.

Unless there is some color of a right to a dismissal, the Court will not entertain a motion made to affirm.

Motions to dismiss or affirm.

A statement of the litigation in Davies v. Corbin is contained in 112 U. S. 112 U.S. 36, which was also a motion to dismiss. The grounds for the motion in Gaines v. Corbin are substantially the same as those in the other case.
