U.S. Supreme Court

McMicken v. Perin, 59 U.S. 18 How. 507 507 (1855)

McMicken v. Perin

59 U.S. (18 How.) 507


A purchase of an interest in property by an attorney, made after judgment has been obtained, is not forbidden by the laws of Louisiana.

And where money is borrowed to make the purchase, the lender of the money is estopped from pleading illegality in the purchase and thus retaining the property which had been conveyed to himself as security for the loan.

In the contract between him and the borrower there was no illegality.

No objections to a master's report can be made which were not taken before the master, nor after a decree pro confesso can a defendant go before the master without a special order, but the accounts are to be taken ex parte.

An appeal will not lie from the refusal of a court to open a former decree, nor have the circuit courts power to set aside their decrees in equity, on motion, after the term at which they were rendered. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
