CASES ARGUED AND DETERMINED
Court of Chancery,
COMMENCING IN THE
SITTINGS BEFORE MICHAELMAS TERM, 8 GEO. IV.
The bill was filed by Green, against Wea. ver, Stanley, and Hempstead, for a discovery with respect to transactions in which he had employed them as his brokers to purchase wools.
Weaver put in an answer, by which he stated, that
He believed it to be true that the plaintiff doth carry on, and for several years hath carried on, in Coleman-street, in the city of London, the business of a Blackwell-hall factor, in his own name, and on his own account ; and that plaintiff, as a Black well-ball factor, hath been accustomed to deal extensively in buying and selling wool.
That by an act of parliament, made and passed in the 6th year of the reign of her late Majesty Queen Anne, intituled “An act for repealing the act of the first year of King
CHANC. VOL. VI.
James the First, intituled • An act for the well garbling of spices,' and for granting an equivalent to the city of London, by admitting brokers," it was enacted, that, from and after the determination of the then session of parliament, all persons, who should act as brokers within the city of London, and the liberties thereof, should from time to time be admitted so to do by the Court of Mayor and Aldermen of the said city for the time being, under such restrictions and limitations for their honest and good behaviour, as that Court should think fit and reasonable, fc.
To the rest of the bill, he refused to give any answer, on the ground, that it would expose him to penalties for misconduct in his function of broker ; he being a sworn broker in the city of London.
Stanley and Hempstead put in a similar answer; stating that they had never been admitted as brokers, and that the discovery of such of the matters alleged in the bill as they had not answered, would subject them to penalties.
The defendants, in their respective an. swers, claimed the same benefit of the objection as if they had pleaded or demurred.
1 825.-A motion was made before the Lord Chancellor, to take the answers off the file as irregular.
