AMERICAN LAW TIMES REPORTS :
A COLLECTION OF
DECIDED IN THE COURTS OF THE UNITED STATES AND COURTS
OF FINAL APPEAL OF ALL THE STATES.
Something more than passive non-resistance in an insolvent debtor is necessary to
invalidate a judgment and levy on his property when the debt is due and he has
no deferece. In such case there is no legal obligation on the debtor to file a petition in bankruptcy
to prevent the judgment and levy, and a failure to do so is not sufficient evidence of an intent to give a preference to the judgment creditor, or to defeat the operation of the bankrupt law. Though the judgment creditor in such a case may know the insolvent condition of
the debtor, his judgment and levy upon his property are not, therefore, void, and
are no violation of the act. A lien thus obtained by him will not be displaced by subsequent proceedings in
bankruptcy, though commenced within four months after levy of the execution or rendition of the judgment. MR. JUSTICE MILLER delivered the opinion of the court.
