The Authority of the "Provisional Court" of Louisiana, 13 American Law Register (n.s.) 385 (1865)


In the early part of this Volume (p. 66), a statement was given of the recent organization of a Provisional Court for the state of Louisiana, by authority of the President of the United States. The extent of the jurisdiction thus created, and the validity of the decrees pronounced by Judge PEABODY, under his commission, present questions of novelty as well as interest. Has a judicial or simply a military tribunal been created? Are its judgments of permanent or temporary force ? Are they conclusive upon the rights of parties, or re-examinable by other courts ?
