U.S. Supreme Court
Hungerford v. Sigerson, 61 U.S. 20 How. 156 156 (1857)
Hungerford v. Sigerson
61 U.S. (20 How.) 156
Where a bill in chancery was filed for the purpose of enjoining a judgment at law obtained upon a promissory note, and the bill did not allege that adequate relief could not be had at law and did not contain any charges of fraud, neither did it aver that it was owing to the contrivance or unfairness of the defendant that an adequate remedy could not be had at law, nor did it show the necessity of interference by a court of equity to obtain a discovery, the bill must be dismissed.
The facts of the case are stated in the opinion of the Court.
