Pratt v. Carroll, 12 U.S. 8 Cranch 471 471 (1814)

Pratt v. Carroll

12 U.S. (8 Cranch) 471

Syllabus

After a lapse of seven years, the Court will refuse to decree a specific performance of a contract in the part execution of which the complainants or those under whom they claim have expended large sums of money, although the first default was on the part of the defendant and although it be probable that the failure of the defendant in that respect has prevented the completion of the execution of the contract on the part of the complainants, circumstances having so changed that neither party could derive from the execution of the contract all the benefits which were at first expected.
