The Gran Para, 23 U.S. 497 (1825)

The Gran Para

23 U.S. 497


Where the court of admiralty has parted with the possession of the property upon bail or stipulation and it is necessary for the purposes of justice to retake the property into the custody of the court, the proper process against any person not a party to the stipulation, but who is alleged to have the actual or constructive possession, is a monition, and not an execution, in the first instance.

This is the same case which was reported at 20 U. S. 20 U.S. 471, and was an appeal from proceedings had in the court below under the mandate of this Court in the original cause.
