U.S. Supreme Court

Bean v. Patterson, 122 U.S. 496 (1887)

Bean v. Patterson

Argued April 18-19, 1887

Decided May 23, 1887

122 U.S. 496


The Court, being satisfied that the conveyance of real estate by the husband, when insolvent, to a trustee for the benefit of his wife (which is assailed in this suit) was made in good faith to secure an indebtedness from him to her for sums previously realized by him from sales of her individual property, sustain it as coming within the doctrine, well settled here, that while such a deed, made under such circumstances, is not valid if its sole purpose is to secure the wife against future necessities, it is, if made to secure a prior existing indebtedness from the husband to the wife, as valid as if made to secure a like indebtedness to any other of his creditors.

In equity to set aside a deed as fraudulent. Decree dismissing the bill. Plaintiff appealed.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
