Ivinson v. Hutton, 119 U.S. 604 (1887)

Ivinson v. Hutton

Argued December 2, 1886

Decided January 10, 1887

119 U.S. 604


On a finding in the court below (1) that certain parol testimony is inadmissible because it tends to vary, explain, contradict, or qualify a written instrument discharging a mortgage, and (2) that if admitted, it was not sufficient to prove any qualification or modification of the discharge, it is immaterial in this Court whether the court below was right in holding that the exception taken there to the parol evidence was error.

This was a suit to foreclose a mortgage. The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
