Jecker, Toree & Co. v. Montgomery

59 U.S. (18 How.) 110

APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

In a State of war, the nations who are engaged in it, and all their citizens or subjects, are enemies to each other. Hence, all intercourse or communication between them is unlawful.

Cases mentioned, by way of illustration, in which property of a subject or citizen, found trading with an enemy, has been adjudged to be forfeited as prize.

The interposition of a neutral port through which the property is to pass does not prevent it from being confiscated.
