Nutt v. Minor, 55 U.S. 14 How. 464 464 (1852)
Nutt v. Minor
55 U.S. (14 How.) 464
Where the Marshal of the District of Columbia engaged the services of a clerk for a stipulated sum per annum, and the service continued without any new agreement, and the jury were instructed that they might imply a new agreement to pay the clerk at a different rate, this instruction was erroneous. There was nothing in the evidence from which the jury could imply such new agreement.
The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
