Van Gieson v. Maile, 213 U.S. 338 (1909)
Van Gieson v. Maile
Submitted April 6, 1909
Decided April 19, 1909
213 U.S. 338
However vexatious the conduct of a litigant may be, his property should not be sacrificed by reason of the court's action, and it appearing, in this case, that the existence of an order in regard to a sale of property under execution made the sale disastrous, it was proper, whether the order was valid or not, to set the sale aside and order a reconveyance on payment into court of the amount of the judgment.
The facts are stated in the opinion.
