United States Supreme Court

58 U.S. 147

Ring  v.  Maxwell

THIS case came up from the circuit court of the United States for the southern district of New York, upon a certificate of division of opinion between the judges thereof.

The facts of the case are stated in the opinion of the court.

It was argued by Mr. Ring, for the complainants, and by Mr. Cushing, (attorney-general,) for the defendant.

There were five questions certified from the circuit court, and argued here. As the arguments covered the whole ground, and the court decided only one of the points, the reporter has concluded to omit the arguments of counsel altogether.

Mr. Justice CURTIS 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).
