Fowler v. Brantly
IN error to the Circuit Court of the United States for the Southern District of Alabama.
In the Circuit Court of Alabama an action was instituted on a promissory note, by the plaintiff in error, against the defendants; and a verdict and judgment were entered for the defendants. The plaintiff took exception to the charge of the Court, and prosecuted this writ of error.
The facts of the case, and the matters which were the subjects of the exceptions taken to the rulings of the Court, are fully stated in the opinion of the Court.
The case was argued at January term, 1839, by Mr. Ogden, for the plaintiff in error; and by Mr. Van De Graff, for the defendants. It was held under advisement, for a reference to a statute of Alabama, until this term.
Mr. Justice CATRON delivered the opinion of the Court.
