Certiorari From The Missouri Supreme Court To The Courts Of Appeals, J. P. Mcbaine Dec 1916

Certiorari From The Missouri Supreme Court To The Courts Of Appeals, J. P. Mcbaine

University of Missouri Bulletin Law Series

In a previous number of the Law Series the writer published an article on the subject "The Writ of Certiorari in Missouri," which treated generally of the use of that writ in this state. This article was published largely because the Supreme Court of Missouri in several cases then recently decided had overruled a long list of earlier decisions and had held that under the constitution it had authority by writ of certiorari to quash the judgment of a court of appeals that had not followed "the last previous ruling of the Supreme Court on any question of law or ...

Proposed Regulation Of Missouri Procedure By Rules Of Court, The, Manley O. Hudson

University of Missouri Bulletin Law Series

At the 1915 meeting of the Missouri Bar Association, the committee on judicial administration and legal procedure recommended "that the matter of making rules for the government of civil practice in the trial courts be delegated to the Supreme Court." A similar recommendation was made by the committee on judicial administration and remedial procedure in 1912, and by a special committee on judicial administration and legal procedure in 1913. The proposal was approved by the Missouri Bar Association in 1913 after a long debate, and it was vigorously advocated by the president of the Association in his annual address in ...

Michigan Law Review

The assize of novel disseisinoriginally lay against the disseisor in possession in favor of the disseisee, and was soon extended to the heir of -the disseisee, but not against the heir or grantee of the disseisor. But the disseisor might be dead or might have conveyed the land, and in such a case the disseisee would be driven to the writ of right with iis delays and chance of battle. But the cases where the defendant had come into possession under a lawful title which was limited in time and had ceased to exist, i.. e., cases where there was ...

Michigan Law Review

On August 7th, 1914, three days after Great Britain had dedared war, a momentous statute, called the Deference of the Realm Act, was passed through the House of Commons with lightning speed, without a word of protest, in that spirit of decision and confidence which has marked the war measures of this Parliament.

Special Assessments Upon Cemetaries - Though the power to tax cemeteries would seem to be'entirely clear, very commonly land devoted to such purpose is declared by constitution or statute to be exempt. See CooLY, TAxATION, (3rd ed.) 354. So also in the case of special assessments such land, in the absence of a clear exemption, is liable thereto. Bloomington Cemetery Assoc. v.

Michigan Law Review

The Mortgages in Possession in New York and in Michigan - It is interesting to observe how tenaciously the old common law of mortgages has persisted in the state of New York, the very cradle of the modem lien theory of the mortgage. As early as 18o2 Chancellor KENT began the importation into that state of Lord MANSFIELD'S Civil Law doctrines of mortgage. Johnson v. Hart, 3 Johns. Cas. 322. In 1814, in the case of Runyan v. Mersereau, ii Johns. 534, the lien theory definitely triumphed over the old law. In other cases, both before and since the statute ...

The Attaint, John M. Zane

Michigan Law Review

The practice of attainting a jury was the method by which for centuries the English law corrected an erroneous finding of fact by the body of men who, in course of time, came to be called a jury. Today this necessary corrective of judicial administration is very inadequately performed by the judge or judges presiding over the trial. The proceeding is now called a motion for a new trial. The new trial is inadequate for the reason that it does not, as did the attaint, substitute a correct verdict for the one given. It merely reverses or sets aside the ...

Liability Of A Carrier Under A Bill Of Lading When The Goods Have Not Been Received By The Carrier, H S. Ross

Michigan Law Review

The coming into force on January I, 1917 in the United States of the FXDMAL BILL Or LADING AcT1 has given new interest to a question which was at one time much debated, namely: should a carrier whose shipmaster or agent has signed a bill of lading be liable to an innocent holder for value of such bill of lading if the carrier can show that the goods were never shipped?


Direct Primary Legislation In Michigan, Arthur C. Millspaugh Nov 1916

Direct Primary Legislation In Michigan, Arthur C. Millspaugh

Michigan Law Review

The first local direct nomination law in Michigan was passed ir 1901; the first general law in 1905. The public opinion, however, which looked to the abolition of the convention system of nomination, rather than to its legal regulation, had its inception as early as 1894. The unusually objectionable primaries of that year led to a pronounced but unorganized agitation for reform, in the course of which a few of the most radical proposed to abolish absolutely all conventions.1 The legislature of 1895 contented itself, however, with attempting the regulation of primaries and conventions, leaving most of the nominating ...
