Original Creator: Kessler, Gilmore & Kronman Current Version: rauvinj



1. Dearle v. Hall and a companion case, Loveridge v. Cooper, were heard and decided together. The report in Russell contains an elaborate statement of the facts of both cases, the opinion of Sir Thomas Plumer, Master of the Rolls, and a detailed summary of the arguments of counsel both at trial and on appeal. The two cases were evidently felt to involve an important principle.


2. In this country Dearle v. Hall came to be the customary reference for the so-called English rule as to priorities between successive assignees of the same chose in action. For the number of American jurisdictions which are thought to have followed the English rule, see Part B of this section.
