Respublica v. Coates, 2 Dall. 109 (Pa. 1790)

Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

June Term, 1790.

Respublica versus Coates.

This was an action on an official bond executed by the defendant; and the real plaintiff, having neglected to strike a jury, the defendant's counsel moved for a rule for trial by proviso; but on a suggestion from the Attorney General, approved by the Court, that such a rule could not be granted against the commonwealth, the motion was made for a peremptory rule to try at the next term; under which the Court said, they would order the jury to be qualified.

Levy for the plaintiff; Serjeant for the defendant.
