U.S. Supreme Court
Rogers v. Palmer, 102 U.S. 263 (1880)
Rogers v. Palmer
102 U.S. 263
1. A., as attorney for B., procured a judgment by default in favor of the latter against C., of whose insolvency and intent to commit a fraud on the bankrupt law he had knowledge. Held that that knowledge was imputable to B.
2. C. having, with intent to give a preference to B., contributed to the rendition of the judgment at an earlier day than without his aid it could have been rendered, an execution was sued out and levied upon his goods. Held that he thereby procured them to be taken on legal process within the meaning of the thirty-fifth section of the Bankrupt Law of March 2, 1867, 14 Stat. 534, as modified by the Act of June 22, 1874. 18 Stat., part 3, pp. 180-181.
The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
