U.S. Supreme Court

Stevens v. Griffith, 111 U.S. 48 (1884)

Stevens v. Griffith

Submitted February 4, 1884

Decided March 17, 1884

111 U.S. 48


A judgment of a Confederate court during the rebellion confiscating a claim due to a loyal citizen residing in a loyal state, and payment of the claim to a Confederate agent in accordance with the judgment, are no bar to a recovery of the claim. Williams v. Bruffy, 96 U. S. 170, and 102 U. S. 102 U.S. 248, cited and its principal points restated and affirmed.

This was an action in a state court in Tennessee to recover a legacy bequeathed the plaintiff by a will proved in Monroe County, Tennessee, in 1859. The defense set up a judgment of a Confederate court, during the rebellion, confiscating the legacy and payment of the judgment. The defense was overruled in the court below where the original trial was had, and sustained in the Supreme Court of Tennessee on appeal. The plaintiff below then sued out this writ of error. chanroblesvirtualawlibrarychanroblesvirtualawlibrary
