Kalanianaole v. Smithies
Argued December 20, 1912
Decided January 6, 1913
226 U.S. 462
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.
