Betts v. Lewis, 60 U.S. 72 (1856)
Betts v. Lewis
60 U.S. 72
According to the practice prescribed for the circuit courts by this Court in equity causes, a bill cannot be dismissed on motion of the respondents for want of equity after answer and before the hearing.
This was a bill filed by Betts against Lewis and wife under the same circumstances which gave rise to the case of Lewis v. Darling, reported in 16 How. 1. It will be seen by a reference to that case, page 57 U. S. that Burr H. Betts was one of the legatees in the will of Samuel Betts.
It is not material in the present report to state the nature of the case.
