[95 U.S.App.D.C. 124] Mr. James T. Barbour, Jr., Washington, D.C., for appellant.

Before EDGERTON, PRETTYMAN, and BAZELON, Circuit Judges.


The question is whether a forfeited recognizance is a judgment within the meaning of D.C.Code 1951, § 15-101, 31 Stat. 1381. We agree with the District Court that it is not. Cf. D.C.Code 1951, § 15-103, 31 Stat. 1381.
