5 U.S. 212
1 Cranch 212
2 L.Ed. 285
February Term, 1803
WRIT of error to the general court of the territory north west of the river Ohio.
This court was established by an ordinance of the colonial congress, during the confederation. The only question decided in the case, was, whether the writ of error would lie.
The writ of error was quashed, on the ground that the act of congress establishing the territory had not authorized an appeal or writ of error, to the supreme court of the United States.
