United States Supreme Court

61 U.S. 506

Selden  v.  Myers

THIS was an appeal from the Circuit Court of the United States for the District of Columbia.

It was a bill filled by Selden, under the circumstances particularly stated in the opinion of the court. The Circuit Court dismissed the bill, and Selden appealed to this court.

It was argued by Mr. Coxe and Mr. Webb for the appellant, and by Mr. Bradley for the appellees.

As this was a case depending entirely upon testimony, where no general principle of equity jurisprudence was involved, the arguments drawn from that testimony are omitted.

Mr. Chief Justice TANEY 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).
