MR. CHIEF JUSTICE WAITE delivered the opinion of the court.
The final decree in this case was rendered on the 13th of July, 1878, and while the writ of error was allowed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Louisiana, and a bond approved and citation signed on the 5th of July, 1880, the writ of error was not actually issued until the 14th, and the copy was not lodged in the clerk's office until the 16th of that month.
No judgment or decree of a State court can be reviewed in this court unless the writ of error is brought within two years after the entry of the judgment. Rev. Stats. § 1008;
It follows that the writ of error in this case was not brought within the time limited by law, and we have consequently no jurisdiction. For that reason
The writ is dismissed.
