A fine with warranty having been
pleaded in bar of assise of Novel
Disseisin, the plaintiff replied that
his aunt, whose heir he was alleged
to be, was a bastard, and that he
could not therefore be her heir.
The plaintiff, however, had pre-
viously brought another assise in
which the husband of his aunt was
one of the defendants and had been
vouched to warranty, and had war-
ranted, and in bar of that assise it
had been pleaded that the plaintiff's
father was a bastard. The plaintiff
had thereupon joined issue as to the
legitimacy of his father without
denying the legitimacy of his aunt.
It was therefore objected that, as
the legitimacy of the aunt had pre-
viously been held as not denied, the
plaintiff could not now plead to
bastardise her. There was no ex-
press decision on the point, but
