Scope and Content Note

The series consists of chronological log books which record the following information about appeals: appellant and respondent names; motions filed; date filed; date argued; date remittitur returned; and decision.

Dates overlap in several volumes covering 1869-1872. The first dozen books of the series are two consecutively numbered sets of volumes; each set has number 1 through 6 stamped on the bindings. The overlap probably results from the fact that between 1870 and 1875 there was a special Commission of Appeals which heard and decided appeals pending at the time the Court of Appeals was reorganized in 1870. The judges on the commission were pre-1870 judges of the Court of Appeals. Information is posted under each case title.
