U.S. Supreme Court

Ransom v. Winn, 59 U.S. 18 How. 295 295 (1855)

Ransom v. Winn

59 U.S. (18 How.) 295


Where a petition is filed in a court of chancery by a creditor praying to be admitted as a party complainant in a suit then existing, but the nature of the original suit is not made to appear, the proceeding is irregular and cannot be sustained.

Where a chancery suit involves matters of account, the action of a master should be had in the inferior court, and the items admitted or rejected should be stated so that exception may be taken to the particular items or class of items, and such a case should be brought before this Court on the rulings of the exceptions by the circuit court.

Ransom filed a petition in a cause then pending in the Circuit Court of the District of Columbia, and all that the record exhibited with respect to said cause was its title, namely:

William S. Herrman v. Isabella Davis and Thomas Winn, administrators, Ignatius T. Davis, Francis R. Davis, heirs at law of Thomas J. Davis, deceased. In chancery.

But upon what ground Herrman filed a bill against the administrators and heirs of Davis the record did not show. The subsequent proceedings are stated in the opinion of the Court. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
