A district judge, specially assigned to a court other than his own for a term of one week, continued to hold the position after the period had expired under the belief that his assignment covered a longer period, and tried this case after the expiration of the one week period. All attorneys, assuming that the assignment covered a longer period, acted in the case without objection to the judge. The parties did not specifically agree upon him as a special judge. After verdict for defendant, plaintiff moved to vacate. Held, the judge was a de facto judge, and his decision is valid. Oklahoma Transportation Co. v. Lewis, 177 Okla. 106, 58 P. (2d) 128 (1936).
