Missouri ex Rel. Walker v. Walker

No. 910

Submitted February l5, 1888

Decided April 2, 1888

125 U.S. 339

Syllabus

A contract, made under authority of a statute, by a state with an individual to prosecute at his own expense before Congress and the Departments certain specified claims of the state against the United States, and to receive as full compensation for his services a certain rate of commission on the amounts collected by him, does not confer upon the agent a power, coupled with an interest in the subject of the contract, which makes the contract of agency irrevocable.

Hall v. Wisconsin, 103 U. S. 5, and Jeffries v. Mutual Life Ins. Co., 110 U. S. 305, distinguished.

This was an application to a state court of Missouri for a mandamus, which was refused. The relator sued out this writ of error. The case is stated in the opinion of the court.
