v.
Ninde et al.

Supreme Court of Indiana.

Sept. 19, 1889.


Appeal from circuit court, Adams county; J. R. Bobo, Judge.


France & Merriman, for appellant. R. S. Peterson and E. A. Huffman, for appellees.

Berkshire, J.

The appellees were the plaintiffs in the court below, and the appellant and one John W. Rout, the defendants. On the 6th day of March, 1883, the appellees, in the Adams circuit court, recovered a judgment against the said John W. Rout for the sum of $400 and costs, and had filed their petition in another action pending in said court, brought by one Bremerkamp against said Rout and another, for the payment of said judgment out of certain moneys in the hands of the clerk of said court, claimed by one Lucy Rout, and in consideration that the appellees would dismiss their said petition, allow their said judgment vacated and new issues joined in said cause, and another trial thereof, the said John W. Rout as principal, and the appellant as surety, executed the obligation sued on in this action. The appellant filed an answer to the complaint in three paragraphs, the first being the general denial. The second and third paragraphs were stricken out on motion, and the proper exception reserved by the appellant; and thereafter there was a trial by the court, and a finding in favor of the appellees in the sum of $491.24, which was on the same day followed by a proper judgment. After the judgment was rendered the appellants filed a motion for a new trial, which the court overruled, and then a motion in arrest of judgment, which was also overruled, and to the action of the court in overruling the said motions the proper exceptions were taken. There are five errors assigned, three of which, the first, third, and fifth, present the same question, viz., that the complaint does not state facts sufficient to constitute a cause of action.

The appellees present a preliminary question, which we will first dispose of before considering the errors assigned. They contend that the motion for a new trial and in arrest of judgment came too late, not having been made until after the rendition of the judgment. The point is well taken as to the motion in arrest of judgment. Hansher v. Hanshew, 94 Ind. 208, and cases cited. The motion for a new trial could be made at any time during the term at which the finding of the court was announced, or on the first day of the next term, if the finding was announced on the last day of the preceding...
