Finley v. Isett

No. 150

Submitted April 7, 1869

Decided April 15, 1869

154 U.S. 561


B., who had transactions with the appellees, who were bankers, delivered to them his five promissory notes secured by mortgage. The appellant was also a creditor of B., and had a claim upon the fund in the appellees' hands. Held: (1) that the fact that the notes were in the possession of the appellees raised a legal presumption that they were their property; (2) that the weight of the evidence was in favor of the position that the appellees were to be first paid before transferring the notes to appellants.

The case is stated in the opinion.
