Rawlins, for sueing the E. of Midd.
This Day Rawlins, an Attorney at Law, was heard, at this Bar, what he could say for himself, why he prosecuted a Suit at Law against the Earl of Midd. contrary to the Privilege of Parliament.
He confessed he took out a Writ against the said Earl of Midd. but kept it by him until Sir William Underhill did assure him that the said Earl of Midd. did give Way to the Suit; and hearing his Lordship did claim his Privilege, he desisted.
