Maine Revised Statutes

§308. Certification of unfinished acts of predecessor judge

Every judge, upon entering on the duties of his office, shall examine the records, decrees, certificates and all proceedings connected therewith which his predecessor left unsigned or unauthenticated. If he finds them correct, he shall sign and authenticate them and they shall then be as valid to all intents and purposes as if such duty had been done by his predecessor while in office.
