United States Supreme Court

88 U.S. 500

Little Assignee  v.  Alexander

APPEAL from the Circuit Court for the Western District of North Carolina.

Little, as assignee in bankruptcy of J. R. Alexander, the father, filed a bill against T. L. Alexander, the son, to have certain real estate of the bankrupt, the father, and which had come as part of his assets to the complainant as assignee, relieved from the apparent incumbrance of a judgment which the son had got against it; the father having made no opposition to the obtaining of the judgment.

The court below dismissed the bill, and the assignee in bankruptcy took this appeal.

The judgment was docketed on the 19th day of May, 1869, and on the 1st day of September, within less than four months thereafter, the petition was filed on which the defendant was declared bankrupt.

Mr. S. F. Phillips, for the appellant; Mr. H. W. Guion, contra.

Mr. Justice MILLER stated the case, and delivered the opinion of the court.
