Kahn v. Smelting Company, 102 U.S. 641 (1880)

Kahn v. Smelting Company

102 U.S. 641

Syllabus

1. Where, under the practice established in Utah, issues are tried by the court, its findings of fact should be announced and filed before the entry of the judgment.

2. After such entry, an additional finding, made at the request of either party without notice to the other, forms no part of the record.

3. A member of "a mining partnership" may, without dissolving it, convey his interest in the mine and business.

4. In a suit to compel an account for the proceeds of a mining claim, a finding by the court that there was no such co-tenancy between the parties in the mine in controversy as to entitle the plaintiff to an accounting is a mere legal inference, and not a sufficient finding of fact upon which to base a decree.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
