Order to prevent Delay of Proceedings upon Writs of Error.
The Order was brought in, for preventing Delay
upon Proceedings of Writs of Errors brought into this
House; and was read, as followeth:
"Forasmuch as, upon Writs of Error returnable into
this High Court of Parliament, the Plaintiffs therein
often desire to delay Justice, rather than to come to
the Determination of the Right of the Cause: It is
therefore this Day ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual
and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the
Plaintiffs in all such Writs, after the same and the Records be brought in, shall speedily repair to the Clerk
of the Parliaments, and prosecute their Writs of
Error, and the Proceedings thereupon; and further shall assign their Errors within Eight Days after
the bringing in of such Writs with the Records: And
if the Plaintiffs make Default so to do, then the
said Clerk, if the Defendant in such Writs require it,
shall record, that the Plaintiff hath not prosecuted his
Writ of Error; and that the House doth therefore
award; that such Plaintiff shall lose his Writ, and that
the Defendant shall go without Day, and that the
Record be remitted. And if any Plaintiff in any Writ
of Error shall alledge Diminution, and pray a Certiorari, the Clerk shall enter an Award thereof accordingly; and the Plaintiff may, before in nullo est Erratum pleaded, sue forth such Writ of Certiorari in
ordinary Course, without special Petition or Motion
to this House for the same; and if he shall not prosecute such Writ, and procure it to be returned within
Ten Days next after his Plea of Diminution put into
this House, then, unless he shall shew good Cause to
this House for the enlarging of the Time for Return
of such Writ, he shall lose the Benefit of the same;
and the Defendant in the Writ of Error may proceed
as if no such Writ of Certiorari were awarded."
ORDERED, That this House agrees to this Order;
and that it be forthwith printed and published.
