Bissell v. Foss, 114 U.S. 252 (1885)

Bissell v. Foss

Argued March 11-12, 1885

Decided April 6, 1885

114 U.S. 252


There is no relation of trust or confidence between mining partners which is violated by the sale and assignment by one partner of his share in the company assets and business to one or more of his associates without the knowledge of the other associates.

The record in this case discloses no equitable reason why the defendants in error, who purchased the interest of third parties in a mine in which all were jointly interested with the plaintiff in error, should be held bound to share with the plaintiff in error the interest so purchased.

This was a suit in equity. The facts which make the case are stated in the opinion of the Court.
