U.S. Supreme Court
Tilton v. Cofield, 93 U.S. 163 (1876)
Tilton v. Cofield
93 U.S. 163
1. Where no local statute or rule of local law is involved, the power to amend is the same in attachment suits as in others.
2. A court of equity cannot act as a court of review and correct errors of a court of law, nor can it, in the absence of fraud, collaterally question the conclusiveness of a judgment at law.
3. A purchaser of property pendente lite is as conclusively bound by the results of the litigation as if he had from the outset been a party thereto.
