The Juliana v. United States

10 U.S. (6 Cranch) 327

APPEALS FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT

FOR THE DISTRICT OF MARYLAND

Syllabus

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.
