Palmer v. Hussey

Submitted November 1, 1886

Decided November 15, 1886

119 U.S. 96

Syllabus

The decision of the highest court of a state upon a motion, accompanied by affidavits as proof, to perpetually enjoin the collection of a judgment obtained in a court of the state on the ground of the discharge of the defendant in bankruptcy, raises a federal question which may be reviewed by this Court.

Hennequin v. Clews,111 U. S. 676, affirmed and followed in holding, on similar facts in this case, that there was no such fraud in the creation of the debt, and no such trust in respect to the possession of the bonds, as to bar the operation of the discharge in bankruptcy.

This was a motion to dismiss, united with a motion to affirm. The facts which make the case are stated in the opinion of the Court.
