U.S. Supreme Court

United States v. Truesdell, 148 U.S. 196 (1893)

United States v. Truesdell

The liability of the United States, under the statute, by virtue of which the work in question was done and the damages occasioned, has been declared in the opinion of this Court in the case, just decided, of United States v. Alexander, ante, 148 U. S. 186, where the facts were similar, and we do not need to repeat what is therein said.

The judgment of the court below is accordingly
