Barrett v. Thomas

| Tenn. | Sep 15, 1850

McKinney, J.:

The petition for certiorari does not show a sufficient cause for not appealing; but tbis is not a case where that is material, as the judgment of the justice of the peace is void, and not merely erroneous. The justice had no- power to render a judgment for money. It should have ordered the pork to be delivered up- for sale. Tbe writ of garnishment as used in Tennessee was unknown to the common law. The circuit judge properly quashed tbe judgment.

Judgment affirmed.
