A Legal Fiction with Its Wings Clipped, 41 American Law Review 38 (1907)

Abstract

Resort to a legal fiction has, from ancient times, been a common means of extending or limiting both rights of action, and rights of defense to actions, where justice seemed to require or as the case might be, to deny a remedy. An arbitrary assumption has been made by which a new character has been assigned to a party, and thereby his access to the courts facilitated or obstructed.
