Mitchell v. Overman
103 U.S. 62
Where the complainant dies after the term at which the cause on its submission for final hearing upon the pleadings and proofs was continued by an order of curia advisare vult, the decree in his favor entered as of that term cannot be impeached by the defendants upon the ground that it was rendered subsequently to his death.
The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
