EDITED BY

ROWLAND COX.

" It is impossible but in process of time, as well from the nature of things chang.
ing, as corruption of agents, abuses will grow up: for which reason, the law muf
be kept as a garden, with frequent digging, weeding, turning, &c. That which in
one age was convenient, and perhaps necessary, in another becomes an intolerable
nuisance." – ROGER North.

AMERICAN LAW TIMES REPORTS :

:

A COLLECTION OF

LEADING CASES

DECIDED IN THE COURTS OF THE UNITED STATES AND COURTS

OF FINAL APPEAL OF ALL THE STATES.

[blocks in formation]

Something more than passive non-resistance in an insolvent debtor is necessary to

invalidate a judgment and levy on his property when the debt is due and he has

no deferece. In such case there is no legal obligation on the debtor to file a petition in bankruptcy

to prevent the judgment and levy, and a failure to do so is not sufficient evidence of an intent to give a preference to the judgment creditor, or to defeat the operation of the bankrupt law. Though the judgment creditor in such a case may know the insolvent condition of

the debtor, his judgment and levy upon his property are not, therefore, void, and

are no violation of the act. A lien thus obtained by him will not be displaced by subsequent proceedings in

bankruptcy, though commenced within four months after levy of the execution or rendition of the judgment. MR. JUSTICE MILLER delivered the opinion of the court.

This case comes before us on a certificate of division in opinion between the circuit and district judges for the District of Minnesota.

The statement of facts and the questions certified are as follows:

The complainant is the assignee in bankruptcy of the firm of Vanderhoof Bros., lately merchants in the city of St. Paul. The defendant is the City Bank of St. Paul. The bill is filed to determine which of the parties is entitled to the stock of goods of the bankrupts, or the proceeds thereof. The assignee claims the goods, or the proceeds thereof, as
