Humphries v. Lawson, 2 Ark. 341 (1847)

Humphries vs. Lawson, No. 1.

Watkins & Curran, for the plaintiff.

Fowler, contra.

Oldham, J.

We are not aware of any law authorizing the cir­cuit court to compel a sheriff to amend, or make a particular return. It is the privilege of the sheriff to amend if he should desire to do so, but he Cannot be compelled to return a particular state of facts; especially when he denies that those facts exist. If he make a! false return the law affords the injured party a remedy, by which he may obtain ample redress. Judgment affirmed.
