CASES ARGUED AND DETERMINED

IN THE

Now that the first 12 Volumes of this series are issued,

a statement of the situation seems not out of order.

[ocr errors][merged small][merged small]

In the original pleadings of this case, the plaintiff claimed that the plan of “Myer's Federal Decisions” makes it so easy for an attorney to find all he seeks in the Federal Reporte, that he saves, at least, three-fourths of the time that would otherwise be necessary to obtain the same information elsewhere.

To this the defendants entered a demurrer-
1. That the facts stated are no: true.
2. That if true, they still do not show a need for the series.

3. That if true, and there is a need for the series, then the plan requires so much persistency, thoroughness and accuracy on the part of the editors, as well as money and business capacity on the part of the publishers, that the project will fall to the ground.

THE DECISION IS

1. By most of the Judges of the U. S. Courts, that the demurrer to the first count is not good, and they show their faith by subscribing.

2. The second count is overruled by a large number of the most eminent men in the profession, who show their appreciation of the series in buying the books.

3. The third ground of demurrer is shown to be not well taken, by the steady issue of the volumes as rapidly as is consistent with good, thorough and accurate work.
