Otis v. Walter

24 U.S. (11 Wheat.) 192

Syllabus

Under the Embargo Act of 25 April, 1808, ch. 170, s. 11, the collector is protected in the honest exercise of his discretion in detaining the vessel, and securing both vessel and cargo until an actual termination of the voyage.

Whether the voyage has terminated is a question of fact, and if the voyage be colorably but not really terminated, the collector may detain the vessel if he has honest suspicions.
