U.S. Supreme Court

In re Hall, 167 U.S. 38 (1897)

In re Hall

No. 17. Original

Submitted April 12, 1897

Decided May 10, 1897

167 U.S. 38


A judgment in the Court of Claims against the District of Columbia recovered under the Act of February 13, 1895, c. 87, was reversed in this Court because interest on the original claim had been improperly allowed, and the case was remanded to that court for further proceedings not inconsistent with the opinion of this Court. The mandate of this Court was filed in that court, and application was made for judgment in accordance with the opinion of this Court, waiving interest. Pending the decision upon this application, the said Act of February 13, 1895, authorizing the original judgment was repealed by Congress, and the Court of Claims declined to enter judgment as prayed for. The plaintiff thereupon made application to this Court for a mandamus to require the Court of Claims to enter judgment as requested. Held that the effect of the repealing act was to take away the jurisdiction of the Court of Claims to proceed further in any case founded upon the repealed act, but that this Court did not intimate by this decision that that court would not have jurisdiction to entertain and grant a motion on the part of the petitioner to reinstate the original judgment.

The case is stated in the opinion.
