U.S. Supreme Court
Catlett v. Brodie, 22 U.S. 9 Wheat. 553 553 (1824)
Catlett v. Brodie
22 U.S. (9 Wheat.) 553
Under the Judiciary Act of 1780, ch. 20, s. 22, the security to be taken from the plaintiff in error by the judge signing a citation on a writ of error must be sufficient to secure the whole amount of the judgment, and is not to be confined to such damages as the appellate court may adjudge for the delay.
