Thomas Heggie, joined by a group of his creditors, obtained a sequestration of his bankrupt estate. As required by statute, the sequestration was based on the oaths of creditors whose debts amounted to a specified sum. Subsequently, a different creditor petitioned the court to recall the sequestration, on the ground that one of the oaths had been false. The creditors who obtained the sequestration argued that it could not be recalled on that basis.
