Contredits, debats, soutenements et reponses pour la veuve et les heritiers Junek, oyants, contre Louis F. Hazeau, rendant [cover and caption title]

Nouvelle-Orleans: Imprimerie du Courrier de la Louisiane, 1856. First edition (?). 8vo. 27 pp. The brief was presented "A l'Hon. Juge de la 2me Cour de District de la Nelle-Orleans" [printed at head of front wrapper]. The case for the plaintiffs, the widow and children of Jean Junek, against Louis Francois Hezeau, charged Hezeau with usurpation of records and administrative control over property acquired for the Saint Vincent DePaul Cemetery, which they said Junek had managed on behalf of the society, proof recorded in account books held by Hezeau, who misrepresented the property, failed to make monthly reports, and used the receipts for himself, leaving Junek's wife and children destitute. They sued to stop him and be repaid thousands of dollars due. Not in Thompson (which lists two other Tissot cases) or Jumonville (which records several Tissot briefs, among them an 1857 appeal of the Junek case to the state supreme court). Apparently unrecorded on OCLC. With defects noted, a very good copy. Original printed tan wrappers (moderate soiling and edgewear, rear wrapper detached), stitched. (#7541). Item #60436
