Considering that even if a later Decree to this effect was present, this could not be retroactively enforced on account of Article Two of the Code of Napoleon;
Considering finally, that in this matter the proceedings in the first instance have been defended by the respondent in accordance with the law;
Overturns the appeal;
Rejects the motion contesting jurisdiction, and orders that the ordinance and referral of the President of the Court of first instance in Haarlem, of twenty third October eighteen hundred and twelve, will produce full effect, and orders the appellants to pay the costs and the fine of the Appeal.




O. dat zelfs, wanneer er eene posterieure beslissing dezen aangaande aanwezig was, dezelve wegens artikel twee van het Wetboek Napoleon geene terugwerkende kracht zoude kunnen hebben;
O. eindelijk, dat door den geintimeerde ter eerster instantie in dezen is geprocedeerd overeenkomstig de wet;
Doet te niet het appel;
Rejecteert de geproponeerde exceptie van incompetentie, en gelast dat de ordonnancie en refere van den President van de Regtbank ter eerster instantie te Haarlem, van den drie en twintigsten October achttienhonderd twaalf, volkomen effect zal sorteren, en condemneert de appellanten in de kosten en in de boete van appel.
