Ludeling v. Chaffe
Argued and submitted January 8, 1892
Decided February 29, 1892
143 U.S. 301
ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT
OF THE STATE OF LOUISIANA
The highest court of a state decided that a judgment of another court of the state granting a petition to revive a judgment under a statute of limitations of the state authorizing this to be done upon citation "to
the defendant or his representative," in order to prevent the running of the statute, could not at the suit of one claiming under the original defendant, be collaterally impeached because the only person cited was the assignee in bankruptcy of that defendant. Held that the decision was not subject to review by this Court on writ of error.
The case is stated in the opinion.
