260 U.S. 360

Syllabus

1. In a suit to cancel a written guaranty for fraud, the defense that the plaintiff has an adequate remedy at law by defending actions brought by the defendant on the guaranty is waived by the defendant where, without insisting upon it, as he might, he introduces proof, under a counterclaim for the amount of the guaranty, putting the instrument in evidence. P. 260 U. S. 363.

2. The provision of Equity Rule 30 that the answer must state any counterclaim arising out of the transaction which is the subject matter of the suit applies only to equitable, not to legal, claims. P. 260 U. S. 363.

273 F. 67, affirmed.
