U.S. Supreme Court

United States v. McLemore, 45 U.S. 4 How. 286 286 (1847)

United States v. McLemore

45 U.S. (4 How.) 286

Syllabus

Although a circuit court, sitting as a court of law, may direct credits to be given on a judgment in favor of the United States, and consequently examine the grounds on which such an entry is claimed, and may direct the execution to be stayed until such an investigation shall be made, yet it cannot entertain a bill, on the equity side, praying that the United States may be perpetually enjoined from proceeding upon such judgment.

Nor can a decree or judgment be entered against the government for costs.

It is unnecessary to recite all the circumstances which led to the filing of the bill in equity, as it was dismissed for the want of jurisdiction in the circuit court. The facts in the case are summarily stated in the opinion of the Court. It is proper, however, to exhibit the account to which the opinion of MR. JUSTICE WAYNE refers:
