Brown v. County of Buena Vista
95 U.S. 157
1. A court of equity will not relieve against a judgment at law where the party seeking its aid has been guilty of laches or fault.
2. Whether the time which has elapsed since the discovery of the fraud, set up as the ground of relief, be sufficient to bar the remedy is a question to be determined by the sound discretion of the court.
The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
