Peugh v. Porter

Argued December 17, 1884

Decided January 6, 1885

112 U.S. 737


An instrument by which A, as attorney in fact by substitution, for good consideration, assigns to B an interest in claims to be established against a foreign government in a mixed commission is valid in equity although made before the establishment of the claim and creation of the fund, and may work a distinct appropriation of the fund in B's favor to the extent of the assignment within the rule laid down in Wright v. Ellison, 1 Wall. 16.

This was an appeal from a decree in a suit in equity in the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia. The facts which make the case are stated in the opinion of the Court. chanrobles.com-redchanrobles.com-red
