Carroll v. Dorsey

61 U.S. (20 How.) 204

Syllabus

Although an irregularity in the citation may be cured by an appearance in court, yet a defect in the writ of error, such as not naming a return day for the writ, or an omission to file a transcript of the record at the term next succeeding the issuing of the writ or the taking of the appeal, are fatal errors, and the case must be dismissed for want of jurisdiction.
