U.S. Supreme Court

Reilly v. Golding, 77 U.S. 10 Wall. 56 56 (1869)

Reilly v. Golding

77 U.S. (10 Wall.) 56


1. By the practice of the courts of Louisiana, a practice which has been adopted in the circuit court in that district, the mode of proceeding in an attachment suit against a surety on a forthcoming bond given to obtain a release of property attached, is by rule to show cause, and this proceeding being merely incidental to the original suit, a jurisdiction existing in such suit will not cease, because the parties to the rule are citizens of the same state.

2. Especially is this true where the defendant in the rule has appeared and answered on merits, and the case has gone to judgment.

3. A judgment affirmed where there was no finding of facts in the case.

Golding, a citizen of Louisiana, brought suit against Milne & Co., of Mississippi, to recover a certain sum due for machinery furnished to last-named parties. The suit was commenced by an attachment against the property of the defendants, situate within the former state and then in possession of the factors of the defendants, Bradly & Co. Bradly & Co. intervened, and obtained the redelivery of the property to them on executing a forthcoming bond, one Reilly being the surety. Afterwards the defendants, Milne & Co., appeared and removed the cause to the circuit court of the United States, and put in an answer to the suit. Judgment was subsequently rendered in favor of the plaintiff against chanroblesvirtualawlibrary

the defendants for the amount claimed, and execution issued, which was returned unsatisfied. Afterwards judgment was rendered against the intervenors by default, dismissing the proceedings with costs, reserving the plaintiff's right under the forthcoming bond. Subsequently a rule was entered against Reilly, the surety upon the forthcoming bond, to show cause why he should not be condemned to pay the debt of the plaintiff according to the condition of the bond. Reilly appeared, and excepted to the jurisdiction of the court, on the ground that the proceedings to enforce payment of the bond was a new suit, and the plaintiff and defendant were both citizens of Louisiana. The court overruled these objections. Reily then put in an answer to the rule on the merits, after hearing which the court below gave judgment against them.

To obtain a review of the action of the court in both particulars, Reilly sued out this writ of error. The record contained no bill of exceptions, demurrer, or statement of facts.
