2 U.S. 114 (____)

2 Dall. 114

OVERSEERS of Coventry versus CUMMINGS.

Supreme Court of United States.

BY THE COURT: — If the return is false, the Justice is liable to an action, at the instance of the injured party: If he has acted contrary to justice, an information will be granted against him. But in the present state of the business (though we highly disapprove of the interference of a Justice in any matter previously decided by another Justice) we must take the case as stated upon the return, without travelling into the merits of the original question.
