Cotzhausen v. Nazro, 107 U.S. 215 (1883)

Cotzhausen v. Nazro

Decided April 9, 1883

107 U.S. 215

Syllabus

1. Dutiable goods cannot lawfully be imported in the foreign mail under the International Postal Treaty of Berne of Oct. 9, 1874. 19 Stat. 577.

2. Such goods are, in the hands of the receiver of them from the post office, subject to seizure, and the fact that there was no intent on the part of the sender or the receiver of them to defraud the United States of the duty does not render the customs officer liable to an action for making the seizure.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
