Excerpt from Reports of Cases Argued and Adjudged in the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia: Sitting in General Term, From June 14, 1880, to May 25, 1882

Eleven years after these reports appeared, the act of March 3, 1863, reorganized the judiciary of the District and modeled it to a large extent after the judicial system of the State of New York. Appeals from the trial court and from the chancellor are now taken to the General Term, from whose decision, if the amount in controversy exceed an appeal lies to the Supreme Court of the United States. Of the cases decided by the General Term, a large number involve most important points of law and equity, and incidental thereto, questions of practice and pleading peculiar to this court. The decisions in a large proportion of these cases are usually final. The Opinions delivered have been almost invariably oral. Heard only by the few members of the bar who happened to be present at the moment of their delivery, they soon became a matter of tradition, and, like tradition, uncertain.
