McFaul v. Ramsey, 61 U.S. 20 How. 523 523 (1857)

McFaul v. Ramsey

61 U.S. (20 How.) 523


Where the only bills of exception were to the refusal of the court to grant a continuance and change the venue, the judgment of the court below must be affirmed, as these matters are not the subjects of review by this Court.

The laws of Iowa permitting a demurrer only when the petition by a fair and natural construction does not show a substantial cause of action, a demurrer to part of the petition in this case was properly overruled.

The case is stated in the opinion of the court.
