Higginson v. Mein - 8 U.S. 415 (1808)
U.S. Supreme Court
Higginson v. Mein, 8 U.S. 4 Cranch 415 415 (1808)
Higginson v. Mein
8 U.S. (4 Cranch) 415
APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
The act of Georgia confiscating the estate of the mortgagor is no bar to the claim of the mortgagee, a British merchant, whose debt was only sequestered during the war. The estate of the mortgagor only was confiscated, not that of the mortgagee.
The act of limitations of Georgia does not apply to mortgagees. The possession of the mortgagor is not adverse.
