U.S. Supreme Court
Sage v. Railroad Company, 96 U.S. 712 (1877)
Sage v. Railroad Company
96 U.S. 712
1. An appeal lies here from the final decree of the circuit court confirming a sale made under its order.
2. After the term at which such final decree was rendered, any Justice of this Court may, within the time prescribed by law, allow an appeal, and approve the bond which is to operate as a supersedeas.
3. A general appearance waives all defects in a citation.
4. The refusal of the circuit court to accept a supersedeas bond, when offered during the term at which the decree was rendered, does not take from a judge of that court, or a Justice of this Court, the power to approve one thereafter.
