Amory v. Amory, 91 U.S. 356 (1875)

Amory v. Amory

91 U.S. 356


1. A cause will not, on the ground that it has no merits, be advanced for argument, nor will it be dismissed on motion simply because the Court may be of opinion that it has been brought here for delay only.

2. The Court will not hesitate to exercise its power to adjudge damages where it finds that its jurisdiction has been invoked merely to gain time.
