The Juliana v. United States
10 U.S. (6 Cranch) 327
APPEALS FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF MARYLAND
Decided: it was no offense against the embargo law to take goods out of one vessel and put them into another in the port of Baltimore unless it be with an intent to export them.
These were appeals from the sentence of the Circuit Court for the District of Maryland, affirming the sentence of the district court, which condemned the schooner Juliana and the ship Alligator and cargo for a supposed violation of the 3d section of the Act of Congress of 9 January, 1808, entitled "An act supplementary to the act entitled An act laying an embargo on all ships and vessels in the ports and harbors of the United States'" by putting goods from the Juliana on board the Alligator.
