Stone v. Towne, 91 U.S. 341 (1875)

Stone v. Towne

91 U.S. 341


A. recovered in the Circuit Court of the United States for the Southern District of Mississippi a judgment against the administrator of B., to the payment whereof he sought, by appropriate proceedings in Louisiana, to subject certain lands there situate. C., who was not a party to the judgment, claimed them under an alleged conveyance to his ancestor from B. Held that C., inasmuch as the judgment was not a lien upon the lands nor binding in any sense upon him, could not sustain a bill in chancery to set it aside.

The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
