12 Jones & S. 557 44 N.Y. Super. Ct. 557

HENRY B. HEWITT, Plaintiff and Appellant, v. SAMUEL C. MORRIS, Defendant and Respondent.

As between the keeper of a house of ill fame, and the landlord who rents the house for that purpose, and the person who equips it for the same purpose, neither has any advantage over the other in morals, and neither is to be more favorably considered by the court or jury in weighing testimony, and determining the credit to be given.

Review of the evidence and facts in this case, by the court, from which there appears no good reason for disturbing the verdict.

Before Curtis, Ch. J., and Sanford, J.

Decided April 1, 1878.

Appeal by plaintiff from a judgment upon a verdict in his favor of ยง1.05, and from an order denying a motion for a new trial upon the minutes.

The action was brought to recover the value of certain personal property alleged to have been converted by defendant.

Curtis, Ch. J.,

wrote for affirmance, holding principles above laid down.

Sanford, J., concurred.
