Dakota County v. Glidden, 113 U.S. 222 (1885)

Dakota County v. Glidden

Submitted January 5, 1885

Decided January 26, 1885

113 U.S. 222

Syllabus

While payment of the sum recovered below in submission to the judgment is no bar to the right of reversal of the judgment when brought here by writ of error, a compromise and settlement of the demand in suit, whereby a new agreement is substituted in place of the old one, extinguishes the cause of action, and leaves nothing for the exercise of the jurisdiction of this Court.

Evidence of facts outside of the record, affecting the proceeding of the court in a case on error or appeal, will be received and considered, when deemed necessary by the court, for the purpose of determining its action.

This was a motion to dismiss. The suit was on county bonds

issued in aid of a railroad. Judgment below for the plaintiff. The defendant brought a writ bf error to reverse it. Subsequently to the judgment, the county settled with the plaintiff and other bondholders, by giving them new bonds bearing a less rate of interest, and the old bonds, which were the cause of action in this suit, were surrendered and destroyed. These facts were brought before this Court by affidavits and transcripts from the county records, accompanied by a motion to dismiss the writ of error. chanroblesvirtualawlibrarychanroblesvirtualawlibrary
