The State of Georgia  v.  Brailsford, et al.

 Argued: February 6–9, 1793 --- Decided: February 20, 1792

Bill in equity.This cause was again brought before the Court, upon a motion by Randolph, to dissolve the Injunction, which had been issued, and to dismiss the Bill.[1] He assigned two grounds in support of his motion:—1st. That the State of Georgia had no remedy at law to recover the Debt in question; and 2nd. That even if there was a remedy at law, there was no equitable right to justify the present form of proceeding. The motion was opposed by Ingersoll and Dallas; and after argument, the opinions of the judges (in the absence of Johnson, Justice,) were delivered as follows.
