U.S. Supreme Court

Walden v. Skinner, 101 U.S. 577 (1879)

Walden v. Skinner

101 U.S. 577


1. Where, as in this case, the evidence exhibited in the record shows that the purchase of land was made upon certain trusts which, through mistake, the trustee failed to have properly declared in the deed, the cestui que trust is entitled to a decree directing the deed to be reformed.

2. The jurisdiction of the circuit court is not defeated by the fact that with the principal defendant are joined, as nominal parties, the executors of a deceased trustee, citizens of the same state as the complainant, to perform the ministerial act of conveying title in case the power to do so is vested in them by the laws of the state.
