Kalanianaole v. Smithies, 226 U.S. 462 (1913)

Kalanianaole v. Smithies

No. 109

Argued December 20, 1912

Decided January 6, 1913

226 U.S. 462

Syllabus

On a pure matter of form as to the parties in a suit coming here from a court of a territory, and where the whole interest in a judgment sued upon was before that court, this Court should not go behind the local practice.

A joint judgment ceases to be joint by the death of one of the parties. Where the joinder of an executor of a party whose interest has ceased is simply a mistake, it is not reversible error.

20 Haw. 138 affirmed.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
