U.S. Supreme Court

Craighead v. Wilson, 59 U.S. 18 How. 199 199 (1855)

Craighead v. Wilson

59 U.S. (18 How.) 199

Syllabus

Where a case in chancery was referred to a master to state accounts between the plaintiffs and defendants to ascertain how much property remained in the hands of the latter, and how much had been sold, with the prices, to make allowances to the defendants for payments made or encumbrances discharged, and to ascertain what might be due from either defendant to the plaintiffs, this was not such a final decree as could be appealed from to this Court.

Although the decree settles the equities of the bill, yet the amount to be distributed amongst the parties depends upon the facts to be reported by the master, and until the allotment to each one of the share to which he might be entitled, the decree cannot be considered as final.
