What is REGALIA?

437; De Voln v. De Voin, 76 Wis. 66, 44 N. W. 839. It is to be observed that “reform” is seldom, if ever, used of the correction of de- fective pleadings, judgments, decrees or other judicial proceedings; “amend” being the proper term for that use. Again, “amend” seems to connote the idea of improving that which may have been well enough before, while “reform” might be considered as prop- erly applicable only to something which before was quite worthless.
