Redditt et al. v. Hale et al, 188 F.2d 832 (8th Cir. 1951)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 188 F.2d 832 (8th Cir. 1951) May 15, 1951

Thomas F. Turley, Jr., Memphis, Tenn. (Hal B. Mixon, Marianna, Ark., on the brief), for appellants.

Joe C. Barrett, Jonesboro, Ark. (Charles Frierson, Jonesboro, Ark., on the brief), for appellees.

Before SANBORN, WOODROUGH, and RIDDICK, Circuit Judges.


The only order which is involved in this appeal is the order made by the District Court directing the entry of judgment pursuant to the mandate of this Court in the same controversy. See Redditt v. Hale, 8 Cir., 184 F.2d 443, 447.

Concededly, the order of the District Court directed the entry of the judgment required by the mandate. That court could not have done otherwise. See and compare, Thornton v. Carter, 8 Cir., 109 F.2d 316.

The question whether the proceedings in the Probate Court of Crittenden County, Arkansas, referred to in our former opinion, have been terminated, as the appellants claim, is not before us on this appeal.

The order appealed from is affirmed.
