Hurt v. Hollingsworth
100 U.S. 100
In the courts of the United States, the union of equitable and legal causes of action in one suit is forbidden by the second section of the Process Act of May 8, 1792, 1 Stat. 276, which is substantially reenacted in sec. 913, Rev.Stat. So held in a case removed, under the act of Congress, to the circuit court from a court of Texas, where such a union is, by the laws of that state, allowed.
The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
