Pensacola Ice Co. v. Perry, 120 U.S. 318 (1887)

Pensacola Ice Company v. Perry

Submitted December 20, 1886

Decided February 7, 1887

120 U.S. 318

ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA

Syllabus

It appearing by the record in this Court that the verdict at the trial of an action of ejectment in the Circuit Court of the United States sitting in Florida did not state the quantity of the estate or describe the land, the judgment was reversed and the cause remanded for a new trial.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.

MR. CHIEF JUSTICE WAITE delivered the opinion of the Court. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary

Page 120 U. S. 319

A statute of Florida, approved February 22, 1881, contains the following provisions:

"SEC. 1. The verdict in actions of ejectment shall, when for the plaintiff, state the quantity of the estate of the plaintiff and describe the land by its metes and bounds, by the number of the lot, or other certain description."

"SEC. 2. The judgment awarding possession shall in like manner state the quantity of the estate and give description of the land recovered."

This was an action of ejectment, and the verdict, which was for the plaintiff, did not state the quantity of the estate or describe the land. This is assigned for error, among others, and Perry, the defendant in error, in the brief which has been filed in his behalf, confesses that the judgment in his favor is thereby vitiated. Without considering any of the other errors assigned, therefore, we reverse the judgment on this ground alone, and remand the cause for a new trial.

Reversed.
