Glenn v. Liggett
Nos. 306, 307
Argued April 29, 1890
Decided May 19, 1890
135 U.S. 533
ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED
STATES FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
A writ of error, the citation and the bond, all of them were dated the day before the judgment sought to be reviewed was rendered, and the writ and the citation were filed on that day in the office of the clerk of the court below. Held, on what appeared in the record, that it must be concluded that the allowance of the writ, the signing of the citation, the approval of the bond, and their filing took place after the rendering of the judgment; that any discrepancy must be attributed to clerical errors, and that this Court had jurisdiction of the writ.
The rulings in Hawkins v. Glenn, 131 U. S. 319, confirmed and applied to these cases.
