U.S. Supreme Court

Lalone v. United States, 164 U.S. 255 (1896)

Lalone v. United States

No. 4

Submitted October 13, 1896

Decided November 30, 1896

164 U.S. 255


The rule that, in all proceedings instituted to recover moneys or to set aside and annul deeds or contracts or other written instruments on the ground of alleged fraud practiced by a defendant upon a plaintiff, the evidence tending to prove the fraud and upon which to found a verdict or decree must be clear and satisfactory extends to cases of alleged fraudulent representations, on the faith of which an officer of the government has done an official act upon which rights of the party making the representations may be founded, and in this case, the evidence on the part of the plaintiff, when read in connection with that which was given on the part of the defendants, falls far short of the requirements of the rule.

The case is stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
