North Dakota v. Minnesota
No. 10, Original
Instruction to the Clerk
Opinion rendered January 21, 1924
263 U.S. 583
In an original suit between states, the practice has been to divide the costs between the parties where the matter was a governmental question in which each had a real, yet not a litigious, interest; but where the proceeding is clearly litigious, conducted on.behalf and, apparently at the expense of private individuals, the costs should be adjudged against the defeated plaintiff.
Costs taxed against plaintiff. See ante, p. 263 U. S. 365.
