U.S. Supreme Court
Lewisburg Bank v. Sheffey, 140 U.S. 445 (1891)
Lewisburg Bank v. Sheffey
Argued April 23, 1891
Decided May 11, 1891
140 U.S. 445
APPEAL FROM THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED
STATES FOR THE DISTRICT OF WEST VIRGINIA
An application for rehearing, made after the adjournment of the term at which the final decree was entered, is made too late.
A decree which determines the whole controversy between the parties, leaving nothing to be done except to carry it into execution, is a final decree for the purpose of appeal, and nonetheless so that the court retains the fund in controversy, for the purpose of distributing it as decreed.
