Siglar & Nall v. Haywood, 21 U.S. 675 (1823)

Siglar & Nall v. Haywood

21 U.S. 675

ERROR TO THE CIRCUIT

COURT OF TENNESSEE

An executor or administrator is not liable to a judgment beyond the assets to be administered, unless lie pleads a false plea.

If he fail to sustain his plea of plene administravit, it is not necessarily a false plea within his own knowledge, and if it be found against him, the verdict ought to find the amount of assets unadministered, and the defendant is liable for that sum only.

In such a case the judgment is de bonis testatoris, and not de bonis propriis. chanrobles.com-red
