PRACTICE REPORTS.

SUPREME COURT.

THE PEOPLE on the relation of THE CENTRAL NATIONAL BANK agt. EDWARD FITZGERALD as treasurer of Rensselaer county.

Mandamus -- the proper remedy to compel the payment by the county treasurer of certain bills audited by a board of supervisors— certificates of audit conclusive as between the parties - estoppel.

Where bills of several individuals, which were in the form prescribed by law, were duly presented to the board of supervisors of a county, who, acting in their judicial capacity, passed upon and audited the same, giving to each person a certificate of audit, which certificates were duly assigned to the relator, who advanced the money thereon:

Held, that on the refusal of the county treasurer to pay the same a manda

mus was the proper remedy to compel their payment.

The certificate of audit is conclusive against the county. As the law gives no appeal from the determination of the board of supervisors in auditing and allowing, or rejecting claims properly submitted to be audited, it necessarily follows that their action is final and conclusive.

It seems the principle of estoppel applies, and prevents the county treasurer setting up that the persons in whose favor the certificates were given are fictitious and the bills fraudulent.

Albany Special Term, May, 1877.

MOTION for a peremptory mandamus.

Messrs. Neary & Martin, for relator.

Mr. E. L. Fursman, for respondent.
