LANDAY W. BEDELL, Informant, v. HIS HONOUR JEREMIAH Z. REEVES, Circuit Judge Presiding by assignment over Court “B”, First Judicial Circuit, Criminal Assizes, Montserrado County, and HIS HONOUR NELSON P. TAYLOR, Stipendiary Magistrate, City of Monrovia, Respondents.


Decided: July 6, 1983

When this case was called for hearing, Counsellor E. Wade Appleton appeared for informant and His Honour Nelson Taylor, one of the respondents, appeared for the respondents. Counsel for informant requested the court to strike the information from the docket because the informant himself had abandoned his case. The Court reviewing the records discovered that there was no Justice’s written directions ordering the clerk to issue the necessary precepts and requesting the respondents to file their returns. Hence, there were no returns filed. The Court further observed that the information is not properly before it since there is no allegation that the respondents are interfering with a matter now pending before it, nor are they obstructing the execution of its mandate. Considering all these legal blunders, it is adjudged that the information not being properly before this court, is hereby ordered stricken from the docket with costs against the informant. The Clerk of this Court is hereby ordered to send a mandate to the court below ordering it to execute this Mandate. And it is hereby so ordered.

NOTE: Justice Yangbe being absent when this case was heard did not participate in the determination of the case. Hence, he did not sign this judgment.
