U.S. Supreme Court

McKnight v. Taylor, 42 U.S. 1 How. 161 161 (1843)

McKnight v. Taylor

42 U.S. (1 How.) 161

Syllabus

There must be conscience, good faith, and reasonable diligence, to call into action the powers of a court of equity.

In matters of account, where they are not barred by the act of limitations, courts of equity refuse to interfere, after a considerable lapse of time, from considerations of public policy, and from the difficulty of doing entire justice, when the original transactions have become obscure by time, and the evidence may be lost.

The facts in the case are fully stated in the opinion of the court, to which the reader is referred. chanrobles.com-red
