Lloyd v. Hough

42 U.S. (1 How.) 153

Syllabus

The action of assumpsit for the use and occupation of lands and houses, existed in Virginia anterior to the cession of the District of Columbia to the United States.

But this action is founded upon contract, either express or implied, and will not lie where the possession has been acquired and maintained under a different or adverse title or where it was tortious and makes the holder a trespasser.

The facts in the case, and bills of exceptions, are stated in the opinion of the Court, to which the reader is referred. chanrobles.com-red
