Date of Decision: Feb 1802
Abstract: John Syme was a volunteer in a Company of the Royal Dumfries Volunteers, but he did not communicate his resignation from the company and his superiors fined him for his delinquency. John Finnan, the Esq. Captain of the company, took the case to court to recover the fined money. The Court reduced the fine by half, but refused Syme's subsequent petition to dismiss the fine entirely (noted in the marginalia).
