AMERICAN LAW TIMES REPORTS :

OF FINAL APPEAL OF ALL THE STATES.
Something more than passive non-resistance in an insolvent deblor is necessary to
invalidate a judgment and levy on his property when the debt is due and he has no defence. 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.

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.
