U.S. Supreme Court

DeWolf v. Hays, 125 U.S. 614 (1888)

DeWolf v. Hays

No. 868

Submitted January 6, 1888

Decided April 9, 1888

125 U.S. 614


Upon the proofs in this case, the court finds that the settlement which the bill seeks to set aside was a prudent and fair one, made deliberately and under advice of competent counsel, and that, independently of any question of laches, no ground is shown for maintaining this suit.

The original suit was a bill in equity, filed May 7, 1884, by Florence W. Hays, the widow of John J. Hays, against Frank E. DeWolf and wife and Horace M. Barnes, to set aside a deed of real estate from DeWolf and wife to Barnes, and to compel a conveyance to the plaintiff. Upon a hearing on pleadings and proofs, the circuit court entered a decree for the plaintiff, and the defendants appealed to this Court. The case is stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
