In Barton v. Geiler, 108 U.S. 161, this court reviewed on a writ of error to the Supreme Court of Tennessee, a decree rendered in the state court, in a suit brought by an assignee in bankruptcy, to set aside a conveyance made by the bankrupt in fraud of his creditors, and affirmed the decree.Summary of this case from McKenna v. Simpson
Decided March 26th, 1883.
This case involves no law. On the facts the decree of the State court is affirmed.
This was a suit in equity brought in a State court of Tennessee by Barton, as assignee in bankruptcy of Kessler Harmon, to set aside a conveyance made by Kessler, one of the bankrupts, to Geiler, and the only question presented by the writ of error is, whether upon the testimony embodied in the record and considered by the Supreme Court of Tennessee in the determination of the cause, it should have been found that the conveyance was in fraud of the bankrupt law. The question is entirely one of fact. There can be no dispute about the law. It is sufficient to say that, after a careful examination of the testimony, we are satisfied with the conclusion finally reached below. It would serve no useful purpose to set forth in an opinion the details of the evidence, or to enter into any discussion as to its effect.
The decree of the Supreme Court of Tennessee is affirmed.
