Curriden v. Middleton, 232 U.S. 633 (1914)
Curriden v. Middleton
Submitted March 4, 1914
Decided March 16, 1914
232 U.S. 633
The proper remedy for damage caused by fraud and deception is an action at law. Buzard v. Houston, 119 U. S. 347.
Mere complication of facts alone and difficulty of proof are not a basis for equity jurisdiction. United States v. Bitter Root Development Co., 200 U. S. 451.
An action in the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia commenced on the equity side of the court cannot be transferred to the law side of that court under Equity Rule 22. That rule has no application.
37 App.D.C. 568 affirmed.
The facts are stated in the opinion.
