Civil Procedure, Appeals and reviews

Headnote and holding:

The court held that as the first appellate court,
it has the duty to re appraise the evidence and
reach an independent conclusion. That the
advice of the Attorney General is not at all
times binding on the government officers
despite the respect given to it. That an order for
mandamus should not be issued to enforce
rights that are subject to dispute.
