Security Trust Co. v. Dent - 187 U.S. 237 (1902)
U.S. Supreme Court
Security Trust Co. v. Dent, 187 U.S. 237 (1902)
Security Trust Co. v. Dent
Argued April 21-22, 1902
Decided December 1, 1902
187 U.S. 237
Where a case is originally brought to this Court by writ of error, but it appears that the proper course was to have brought the final judgment of the circuit court of appeals for review by writ of certiorari, this Court, under the powers given by the Judiciary Act of March 3, 1891, may allow a writ of certiorari and direct that the copy of the record heretofore filed under the writ of error be taken and deemed as a sufficient return to the certiorari.
The facts and questions of law involved in this case are similar to those decided in the case of Security Trust Co. v. Black River National Bank, p. 187 U. S. 211, ante.
The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
