Supreme Court of South Dakota


BERGMAN, Respondent, v. MARGESON, Appellant.

(139 N. W. 374.) 1. Justice's Court-Appeal-Filing Within Statutory Time-Waiver.

Failure of justice of the peace to file the appeal transcript within fifteen days from time of perfecting appeal, as provided in Sec. 106, Justice's Code, is not jurisdictional, and right to

dismiss the appeal on that ground may be waived. Appeal-Failure to File Appeal—Waiver-Decisions of Inter

mediate Court.

Where respondent goes to trial in circuit court, on an appeal from justice's court, without timely motion to dismiss appeal for defendant's failure to file appeal within statutory time, he waives right to dismissal on that grouna, and, as the statute confers upon appellant no right to object in circuit court for failure of a justice to transmit the record, files and transcript, no question arising under Sec. 106. Justice's Code, is presented for review on appeal from a judgment of circuit court dismiss

ing the appeal to that court. 3. Justice's Court-Pleadings—Record-Appeal-Presumptions.

Under Justice's Code, Secs. 18, 93, 94, defining requisites of pleadings in justice's court and concerning what the docket must contain, and the docket entries as evidence, 'the court, where the docket is silent as to the pleadings and contains no recitals or filing of any plead ngs, can only assume that the case was tried in justice's court without pleadings and was submitted on issues raised by the evidence, and that, on the evidence and issues thus presented, the justice entered the judg

ment disclosed in the transcript. Same-Appeal-Leave to File Pleading_Objection to Evidence.

Where the record on appeal from justice's court is silent as to, and contains no recital of the filing of, any pleadings, and

does not purport to contain the substance of any oral pleadings, 1_Vol. 31, S. D.



the circuit court, on objection, by defendant appealing, to the introduction of evidence because no pleadings are before the court, and no complaint or issue upon which the evidence offered may be received, may permit plaintiff to file a com

plaint, and defendant to file his answer. 5. Justice's Court-Appeal-Dismissal of Appeal For Want of

Pleadings—Dismissal of Action.

The circuit court, on appeal from justice's court, may not dismiss the appeal because of absence of pleadings, oral written, but may dismiss the action for want of issues to be tried, unless the parties ask leave to file pleadings, which leave may be granted.

(Opinion filed January 6, 1913.) Appeal from Circuit Court, Lyman County. Hon. WILLIAM WILLIAMSON, Judge.

Action by Henry Bergman against Frank Margeson, for damages for cutting hay. From a judgment of the circuit court dismissing an appeal from justice's court, defendant appeals. Reversed and remanded.

Bartine & Bartine, Frank C. Wederath, and Lloyd E. Waggoner, for Appellant.

The appeal brought the case before the court for a trial, and no complaint appearing and no chance to demur or plead that another action was pending between the same parties for the same subject matter, this question was properly raised by defendant's objection to any evidence. See pages 1 and 2 of transcript.

The defendant cannot be said to have waived his right to make this objection by section 125 Code of Civil Procedure, as the time to thus object depended on what pleadings the plaintiff might offer.

The plaintiff having failed to ask leave to supply the complaint, the defendant had no other means of bringing that question before the court.

In South Dakota it is the settled law of the state that the notice and undertaking on appeal from the Justice Court gives the Circuit Court jurisdiction and the appeal cannot be dismissed because of the failure of the justice to transmit the full record on appeal. McLaughlin v. Michel, et al., 14 S. D., 189.

In order that the Circuit Court may summarily dismiss the appeal there must be an utter lack of jurisdiction. But in the case at bar, jurisdiction having been obtained as repeatedly held
