Virginia v. West Virginia, 222 U.S. 17 (1911)

Virginia v. West Virginia

No. 3, Original

Motion to proceed with the further hearing and termination of the case

Submitted October 10, 1911

Motion overruled October 30, 1911

222 U.S. 17


Even if the question in litigation is important and should be disposed of without undue delay, a state cannot be expected to move with the celerity of an individual; a motion made in this case by complainant that the court proceed to determine all questions left open by the decision in 220 U. S. 220 U.S. 1 denied without prejudice.

The conference suggested by this Court, 220 U.S. 220 U. S. 36, is one in the cause to settle the decree, and not to effect an independent compromise out of court.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
