Roman law. A proceeding for the removal of a suspected guardian. Accusation of a suspected tutor. This was an action under the civil law against a tutor, arising out of certain circumstances. If he was unfaithful in performing his duties, such as failing to have alimony decreed to the pupil, or was of bad character, he might be removed from his office as suspectus, on an application to the Praetor, at the instance of any citizen. Such an application with us can only be made to the Court by one of the minors or pupils next of kin, or by a co-tutor or co-curator of the suspectus. By the Pupil's Protection Act (12 and 13 Viet., cap. 51), it is made competent to the Lord Advocate, where he has reasonable grounds for suspecting ' malversation or misconduct on the part of' the tutor, to apply to the Court for his removal.
