ON MOTION TO DISMISS AN APPEAL FROM THE

DISTRICT COURT FOR NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

Syllabus

A citation to the adverse party, with due return or waiver by general appearance, or otherwise, is indispensable to jurisdiction on appeal.

On motion to dismiss an appeal from the District Court for Northern California, the CHIEF JUSTICE stated the case and gave the opinion of the Court.

The final decree in the district court was rendered on the 8th September, 1863, and an appeal was allowed, on motion of the claimant, on the 18th November, 1863. Upon this appeal no action was taken by the appellants. On the 23d February, 1864, an appeal was again allowed, and the record was brought to this Court and filed November 11, 1864.

This was in time, but no citation was issued to the adverse party, and there is nothing to show any waiver, and a citation, with due return, or waiver by general appearance or otherwise, is indispensable to jurisdiction an appeal. *

The writ, therefore, must be

Dismissed.
