Goodwin  v.  United States

APPEAL from the Court of Claims, in which court one Goodwin, who had chartered a schooner to the United States, at a fixed per diem, sought to recover the per diem during one hundred and forty-four days in which, under the circumstances hereinafter mentioned, the vessel had been detained by the marshal of the United States on a libel filed against her.

The Court of Claims dismissed his petition, and Goodwin took this appeal.

Mr. T. J. D. Fuller, for the appellants; Messrs. G. H. Williams and C. H. Hill, contra.

Mr. Justice SWAYNE stated the case, and delivered the opinion of the court.


This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States federal government (see 17 U.S.C. 105).
