Pendleton v. Lomax
Pendleton v. Lomax, Wythe 4 (1790), was a case originally appealed to the High Court of Chancery from the Caroline County Court. The plaintiff was one of the Chancellors, however, and the remaining two Chancellors split, so the case was transferred to the Supreme Court of Appeals of Virginia.
