King Iron Bridge & Mfg. Co. v. Otoe County, 124 U.S. 459 (1888)
King Iron Bridge and Manufacturing Company v. Otoe County
Submitted December 22, 1887
Decided January 30, 1888
124 U.S. 459
In Nebraska, the cause of action upon a county warrant issued by a board of county commissioners does not accrue when the warrant is presented for payment and endorsed "not paid for want of funds," but at a later date when the money for its payment is collected or when sufficient time has elapsed for the collection of the money, and as matter of law it cannot be said that about two years is such a "sufficient time" so as to cause the statute of limitations to begin to run.
This was an action to recover upon two county warrants issued by defendant. Judgment for defendant. Plaintiff sued out this writ of error. The case is stated in the opinion of the court.
