United States v. Coxe
58 U.S. (17 How.) 41
In June, 1846, Coxe and thirteen others filed a petition in the district court under the acts of Congress passed in 1824 and 1844, the purport of which acts has been so often explained in the preceding volumes of these reports that it is unnecessary now to recapitulate it.
The United States pleaded the general issue, and the cause was tried without the intervention of a jury and judgment rendered in favor of the petitioners on the 30th of May, 1849.
The United States prayed an appeal in open court, which was allowed on the 6th of June, 1849.
