U.S. Supreme Court

Clark v. United States, 99 U.S. 493 (1878)

Clark v. United States

99 U.S. 493


A., residing in New Orleans and B. in Mobile during the whole rebellion, consigned cotton which they owned to C., a supervising special agent of the Treasury Department. It arrived at Mobile on the last of July or the first of August, 1866, when it was claimed by them. It was consigned to him to facilitate its arrival, as the government had at that time charge of the railroads. C. having received orders from the Treasury Department to ship all cotton received by him, shipped in the latter month that of A. and B. to New York, where it was sold. The net proceeds were paid into the Treasury. A. and B. brought suit for them against the United States in the Court of Claims March 27, 1872. Held that the suit was barred by the statute of limitations.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
