Higginson v. Mein

8 U.S. (4 Cranch) 415

APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT

FOR THE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA

Syllabus

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.
