Montgomery v. Sawyer, 100 U.S. 571 (1879)

Montgomery v. Sawyer

100 U.S. 571


In Louisiana, if a person dies pending suit against him and the proceedings are continued by his heirs becoming parties, the judgment should be against his succession or them; if, without reference to the revival of the suit, it be entered only against the deceased eo nomine, and be so recorded, it is as a judicial mortgage void against third persons.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
