Van Gieson v. Maile

No. 121

Submitted April 6, 1909

Decided April 19, 1909

213 U.S. 338

Syllabus

However vexatious the conduct of a litigant may be, his property should not be sacrificed by reason of the court's action, and it appearing, in this case, that the existence of an order in regard to a sale of property under execution made the sale disastrous, it was proper, whether the order was valid or not, to set the sale aside and order a reconveyance on payment into court of the amount of the judgment.

The facts are stated in the opinion.
