Gilman v. Lockwood
71 U.S. (4 Wall.) 409
Certificates of discharge granted under insolvent laws passed by a state cannot be pleaded in bar of an action brought by a citizen of another state in the courts of the United States or of any other state than that where the discharge was obtained unless it appear that the plaintiff proved his debt against the defendant's estate in insolvency or in some manner became a party to the proceedings. Baldwin v. Hale, 1 Wall. 223, and Baldwin v. Bank of Newbury, 1 Wall. 234, affirmed.
