U.S. Supreme Court

Ex Parte Morgan, 114 U.S. 174 (1885)

Ex Parte Morgan

Argued March 30-31, 1885

Decided April 8, 1885

114 U.S. 174


A writ of mandamus may be used to require an inferior court to decide a matter within its jurisdiction and pending before it for judicial determination, but not to control the decision.

The plaintiff in the suit below, believing that the judgment as recorded did not conform to the finding, moved the court to amend it in that particular. The court heard and denied the motion. Held that this was a judicial act which could not be reviewed by mandamus.

This was an application for a writ of mandamus. The facts which make the case are stated in the opinion of the Court.
