Security Trust Co. v. Dent, 187 U.S. 237 (1902)

Security Trust Co. v. Dent

No. 42

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.
