Owen v. Dudley & Michener, 217 U.S. 488 (1910)

Owen v. Dudley & Michener

No. 142

Argued April 7, 8, 1910

Decided May 16, 1910

217 U.S. 488


In this case, a contract made by the attorney of record with associate counsel for professional services to be paid out of fees in an Indian litigation in the Court of Claims construed, and, although the contract provided that, in case the fee were not provided for by legislation, but had to be proved, each party should prove his fee independently, held that, as the attorney of record had collected without legislation the entire fee originally contemplated and allowable, he must account for the amount so collected by him and pay the associate counsel the amount agreed under the contract.

31 App.D.C. 177 affirmed.

The facts, which involve the construction of a contract for legal fees, are stated in the opinion.
