As amended May 3, 1888. The foregoing rule, as amended, is ordered to take effect June 5, 1888. RULE 59. Whenever any record in a case at law brought up on writ of error or case made is so prolix as to cause vexation by reason of the multiplicity of frivolous assignments, or by any other abuse, it shall be within the discretion of the court to grant such costs against the prevailing party, who is responsible for such abuse, as may offset in whole or in part the costs to which he would otherwise be entitled. A copy of the printed record in civil cases at law and in chancery, together with a printed copy of the brief, shall be served by the party bringing the case into this court upon the attorney or solicitor of the opposite party in the court below, if he have one,-if not, then upon the party,--at least 25 days before the first day of the term for which the cause is or shall be noticed for hearing or argument; and the attorney or solicitor of the opposite party shall serve a printed copy of his brief upon the attorney or solicitor of the other party within 20 days thereafter. Either party may print and serve upon the other party supplemental briefs at any time before the case is placed upon the call for hearing or argument. As amended May 3, 1888. The foregoing rule, as amended, is ordered to take effect July 1, 1888.
