§58-4-17. Judgment of circuit court; appeal or writ of error to
supreme court of appeals.
The circuit court, where an appeal, writ of error or
supersedeas has been allowed by such court or the judge thereof in
vacation, shall, upon the hearing thereof, affirm such judgment,
decree or order if there be no error therein prejudicial to the
appellant, or reverse the same in whole or in part if erroneous;
and, if reversed, the circuit court may enter such judgment, decree
or order as the court of limited jurisdiction should have entered,
or may retain the case for new trial or hearing on further
proceedings, or may remand it to the court of limited jurisdiction
to be further proceeded in and finally determined. From any action
of the circuit court in affirming or reversing any judgment, decree
or order of such court of limited jurisdiction, an appeal or writ
of error shall lie to the supreme court of appeals.
