Missouri v. Illinois, 202 U.S. 598 (1906)

Missouri v. Illinois

No. 4, Original

Submitted May 14, 1906

Decided May 28, 1906

202 U.S. 598


This Court has power to allow costs in original actions and in any action between states, the successful state may ask for costs or not, as it sees fit, and there is no absolute rule that, in boundary cases, the costs are divided. Costs therefore are allowed to the defendant in this suit in which the plaintiff alleged serious pecuniary damage and framed its bill like the ordinary bill of a private person to restrain a nuisance.

The solicitor's fee of $2.50 for each witness examined before the examiner and admitted in evidence was properly allowed as fees for depositions under § 824, Rev.Stat.

The question involved in the motion is stated in the opinion.
