U.S. Supreme Court
Ward v. Chamberlain, 62 U.S. 21 How. 572 572 (1858)
Ward v. Chamberlain
62 U.S. (21 How.) 572
Where a libel was filed by the owners of a steamer against the owners of a propeller for a collision, and there was an agreement between the parties in the court below that the answer of the respondents should operate as a cross-libel, the mode of proceeding does not meet the approval of this Court, and ought not to be drawn into precedent. The respondents should file their cross-libel, take out process, and have it served in the usual way.
The decision in the preceding case again affirmed.
This was in fact a cross-appeal in the preceding case, although there was no cross-libel filed. Being a branch of same case, it was argued by the same counsel.
