U.S. Supreme Court

United States v. Fletcher, 147 U.S. 664 (1893)

United States v. Fletcher

No. 783

Submitted January 3, 1893

Decided March 6, 1893

147 U.S. 664


When, for convenience in making up accounts, an outgoing marshal relinquishes to his successor his right to expenses incurred in endeavoring to arrest persons for offenses against the United States, the incoming marshal may charge these fees in his accounts, and they should be allowed.

A marshal of a district into which an offender who has committed a crime in another district comes may deputize the marshal of the district in which the offense was committed or his deputy to execute the warrant of removal and relinquish to him the fees therefor.

The Treasury officers have a right to require of a marshal items of expenses incurred in endeavoring to arrest persons charged with the commission of crime.

When claims against the United States are presented to the proper department for allowance, and the department suspends action until proper vouchers are furnished or other reasonable requirements are complied with, the courts should not assume jurisdiction until final action is taken.

A marshal may charge mileage upon as many writs as he may have in his hands where the writs are against different persons.

The case is stated in the opinion.
