U.S. Supreme Court SHAW v. WALLACE, 2 U.S. 179 (1792)
2 U.S. 179 (Dall.)
Supreme Court of Pennsylvania
September Term, 1792
This cause was set down for trial; but was afterwards continued by the plaintiff. The defendant's attorney, prayed a rule might be granted for security for costs, the plaintiff
residing in New York. Moylan, objected, that the motion came too late, after the cause had been marked for trial.
But, By the Court: It is never too late to grant the rule, when it will not delay the trial.
