United States Supreme Court

60 U.S. 303

Byers  v.  Surget

THIS was an appeal from the Circuit Court of the United States for the eastern district of Arkansas, sitting in equity.

It was a bill filed by Surget, a citizen of Mississippi, to set aside a sale made under the circumstances, which are fully stated in the opinion of the court.

The Circuit Court decreed that the purchase of the lands by Byers was fraudulent and void, and ordered the sale to be set aside. Byers appealed to this court.

It was argued by Mr. Lawrence for the appellee, no counsel appearing for the appellant.

Mr. Justice DANIEL delivered the opinion of the court.


This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States federal government (see 17 U.S.C. 105).
