Means v. Dowd

No. 47

Submitted and decided December 17, 1888

128 U.S. 583


The Court denies a motion for an order for a mandate, no notice of it having been given to the other party.

It has been the custom with the Court to make a general order, immediately before the commencement of the February recess, for the issue of mandates in every case disposed of prior to the 1st of January if application therefor should be made, except in cases in which a petition for rehearing might be pending, and cases docketed and dismissed under the 9th rule. In this case, which is reported ante, page 128 U. S. 273, application was made to the Court for the immediate issue of a mandate without giving the other party notice of the intention to make such a motion.
