Supreme Court of Pennsylvania

September Term, 1791

The determination of this cause turned on the following point, which was submitted to the Court, to wit; whether goods, which, after being distrained for rent, had been replevied, and delivered to the plaintiff in replevin, could be taken in execution.

By the Court: This point has been already determined in Philadelphia. The lien on the goods is discharged by the security given to the sheriff; and as soon as they are delivered back to the plaintiff in replevin, they are open to execution, or a new distress.

Judgment for the Plaintiff.
